Mobility scooter morphs into a Vespa scooter

vespa mobility scooterMore than 200 classic scooter enthusiasts joined a huge gathering in a Lincolnshire market town.

The rally organised by the Sleaford All-Knighters Scooter Club saw hundreds of scooter enthusiasts congregate outside the Jolly Scotchman pub in Holdingham to view the classic scooters up close and personal.

There was also a procession through Sleaford town centre and a ride out to honour Sleaford All-Knighters member, Nicky Reeves, 55 who has Down’s Syndrome. Nicky, who has a mobility scooter which was customised by other club members with a Vespa scooter body, led the procession. .

Rob Castle, who runs the Sleaford All-Knighters Scooter Club and organised the event, said: “Nicky loves scooters and there is no chance that he can ride one because he has Down’s Syndrome. We got an electric mobility scooter and put a Vespa front on it and we put a plea out to local clubs to donate things like wing mirrors. “Last year we decided to celebrate this with a ride out and this year is the second anniversary of that.”

Last year, the rally raised money for the Glass House Project and this year funds will support a woman in Ruskington who also suffers from the condition.
