Cool Kangoo


UK accessible transport company Gowrings Mobility is celebrating its 40th anniversary in a big way. They're giving away a wheelchair adapted Renault Kangoo. An example is shown here. Adaptations include: " a lowered floor for extra headroom, an integral lightweight ramp, four-point wheelchair restraint system and personal lap and diagonal belts for the wheelchair passenger so that they can travel safely in the comfort of their own wheelchair," says carpages.co.uk. There's still time to enter by Dec. 9, but note that the fine print on the contest says the vehicle will be delivered to any UK address. Paralympic athlete Dame Tanni Grey-Thompson, who is lending her name to the contest, said : "Transport and independence is something that is really important to me. Without being physically independent, I wouldn't be able to be an athlete, so it's so important that disabled people have the opportunity to choose what they do and when they do it. With an accessible car, you can be spontaneous and go where you want, when you want. Having an adapted vehicle alters your whole outlook on going out - suddenly you stop reflecting on what you can't do, start thinking about what you can do, and then act upon it."
