Path to Success has donated 60 wheelchairs to 60 hospitals to mark 60 years of the Elizabeth II’s reign.

 

The wheelchairs can be used to transfer patients weighing up to 450 kg within the hospital buildings.  

Charity founder Anita Choudhrie said: “We are aware of the great work that the NHS is doing to help cover patients’ requirements across the UK and we wanted to collaborate with hospitals and help some of the patients by providing the wheelchairs.”
