Community Equipment Needed – Drop off at Fenny Compton Fire Station

Warwickshire is looking for any spare community equipment that you may have had from hospital or your GP. Nationally there appears to be shortage of this equipment – so we just want to ensure we have enough to go to those people who need it.

It could be anything from walking frames through to crutches. The complete list of equipment we are looking for includes:

·       Wheeled trollies

·       Wheeled or mobile tables

·       Perching stools

·       Crutches

·       Walking Frames (with or without wheels)

What to do

If you have had any of the above then we are asking that you or a friend or family member bring them to one of the local drop off points below.
