Harefield Gazette - - NEWS -

A CHAR­ITY which sup­ports dis­abled peo­ple has opened a new shop in Yiewsley High Street,

Jeff Wayne, War of the Worlds mu­si­cian and pa­tron of Hert­ford­shire Ac­tion on Dis­abil­ity (HAD), opened the equip­ment and ad­vice cen­tre shop on Fri­day, Oc­to­ber 30.

It will sell a range of mo­bil­ity aids, from walk­ing sticks to rise and re­cline chairs.

HAD’s com­mer­cial man­ager Chris­tian Den­man said: “With Hilling­don Hospi­tal nearby and as­sisted liv­ing and med­i­cal cen­tres open­ing lo­cally soon, we’re in the per­fect place.”

HAD also pro­vides key ser­vices for older and dis­abled peo­ple in­clud­ing ac­ces­si­ble trans­port, driv­ing lessons and in­for­ma­tion and ad­vice.

The char­ity lost all its gov­ern­ment fund­ing in 2014 but still operates a cen­tre in Wel­wyn Gar­den City, Hert­ford­shire.
