Weymouth and Portland Lions Club donate £1,000 towards beach wheelchair

Weymouth and Portland Lions Club has donated £1,000 to Weymouth Town Council to go towards purchasing a new beach wheelchair for Weymouth beach.   

The wheelchair would provide those with restricted mobility the opportunity to be able to go down to the water’s edge at Weymouth’s award-winning beach.  

Weymouth Town Council already has two beach wheelchairs which are made available to the public to use for free and this donation will help towards the cost of buying a new chair once the rest of the funding is secured.   

Club Vice President, Ryan Hope said, “I am delighted that the Weymouth and Portland Lions Club has been able to donate £1,000 which will help towards a new beach wheelchair. This will provide those with restricted mobility access to the beach front.”   

Mayor of Weymouth, Cllr Ann Weaving, added: “It was lovely to receive this cheque on behalf of Weymouth Town Council. This money will go towards buying something that is valued by a lot of people who come to enjoy Weymouth beach over the busy season.” 

If any other local communities or clubs would like to donate towards the cost of a beach wheelchair, or if you have any questions regarding the wheelchairs, please email resort@weymouthtowncouncil.gov.uk
