Local Regains Her ‘Mobility’

Linda Harding of Aldergrove has a new scooter for mobility, thanks to Paul Gauthier and Zosia Ettenberg.

Harding had lost her electric scooter in an exercise pool accident last May 11 and was unable to replace it until a few weeks ago when Ettenberg of Langley Pos-Abilities Society connected her with Paul Gauhier, network coordinator of B.C. Personal Supports Network.

Through EATI (Equipment and Assistive Technology Initiative) which arranges funding for training and mobility assistance to disabled persons, a new chair was obtained for Harding.

It was formally presented to Harding Tuesday at Harding’s church, St. Dunstan’s Anglican Church.

Langley Pos-Abilities is hosting a fundraising “Dining in the Dark” event at Andreas Restaurant in Langley on May 13, 6 p.m. For tickets, $40 each, or information, call Ettenberg at 604-961-0117.
