New scooter puts woman back on the road

Linda Harding of Aldergrove has a new scooter for mobility, thanks to Paul Gauthier and Zosia Ettenberg.

Harding had lost her electric scooter in an exercise pool accident last May 11 and was unable to replace it until a few weeks ago when Ettenberg of Langley Pos-Abilities Society connected her with Gauthier, coordinator of B.C. Personal Supports Network.

Through EATI (Equipment and Assistive Technology Initiative) which arranges funding for training and mobility assistance to disabled persons, a new chair was obtained for Harding.

It was formally presented to Harding on May 3 at St. Dunstan’s Anglican Church.
