Hero organises transport to show for mobility scooter users
MOBILITY scooter users will be able to enjoy the Fraser Coast Show thanks to a new free transportation service.
Ian Dinte has organised a bus to take those with a mobility scooter in Hervey Bay to Maryborough Showgrounds safely.
This idea was sparked when Mr Dinte took a friend, who requires a mobility scooter, to the show last year.
"She just a ball going around everywhere at the show," Mr Dinte said.
"Thanks to that positive response, I've decided to expand it."
Mr Dinte has secured a grant from the Hervey Bay RSL to help make this idea a reality.
Now, he just needs to gather the number of people that would be interested in going.
"We would have a spot where we would all meet and go together," he said.
"And those using the service will get a half price discount for entry to the show, and pay $5 instead of $10."
The free service will be provided on the first day of the show - May 25.
Those interested in jumping aboard are advised to call Mr Dinte on 0417 788 285.
