Ron’s now sit­ting pretty

Harefield Gazette - - NEWS -

RON Tay­lor from Cow­ley might be some­thing of a rar­ity at the mo­ment – a happy Manch­ester United sup­porter.

Al­though his team is un­der per­form­ing the 72-year-old is pleased to be able to watch the foot­ball in a new fire­side chair from the dis­abled char­ity HAD (Hert­ford­shire Ac­tion on Dis­abil­ity).

Mr Tay­lor, who has a trapped nerve in his back, was one of the first cus­tomers through the doors of HAD’s mo­bil­ity equip­ment cen­tre in nearby Yiewsley at the end of last year.

Be­fore buy­ing his chair Ron re­ceived a free as­sess­ment from HAD oc­cu­pa­tional ther­a­pist Chris Bel­lia and trusted as­ses­sor Cherie West.

He said: “The ser­vice I got was first class – pro­fes­sional and thor­ough. I was mea­sured and checked to en­sure the chair was right for me and this made a big dif­fer­ence.”

Mr Tay­lor, who has been mar­ried to his wife Bar­bara for 45 years, and has sup­ported Manch­ester United since 1958.
