We are delighted to announce the donation of nine wheelchairs to Ipswich Town FC Foundation for supporters to use on match days.
The wheelchairs will contribute to making the experience of visiting Portman Road more accessible on a match day, adding to improvements across last season, including the return of sensory packs and the addition of more accessible benches in the pre-match FanZone.
‘Medequip and our wheelchair service Ross Care provide the Community Equipment Service on behalf of the NHS in Suffolk,’ said Andrea Clifton, Account Manager at Medequip.
‘We are delighted to have been able to supply wheelchairs for use by visitors to the stadium. We work hard to give back to the community that we live and work in and we look forward to continuing to work with ITFC to increase disabled access to football for everyone of all ages whether playing or watching.’
‘This is an incredibly generous and thoughtful donation’ added Disability Liaison Officer Lee Smith.
