Cris Leonard and his son Dan dropped off two high-end scooters at the Langley Senior Resources and Recreation Centre Monday.

High-end scooters donated to Langley Senior Resources Society

'I figured we might as well give them to someone who can use them'

Cris Leonard and his son Dan backed two high-end electric scooters off a trailer at the front entrance of the Langley Senior Resources and Recreation Centre Monday.

The older Leonard, a Langley realtor, explained he bought the two scooters back when he was thinking about launching an import business.

When he decided against it, he had no need for the two scooters.

Rather than leave them in a warehouse, “I figured we might as well give them to someone who can use them,” Leonard said.

The two donated scooters have an estimated retail value of more than $11,000.

The Langley Senior Resources Society plans to give one of them to an outreach client who has mobility issues.

The second scooter will be raffled off to raise funds for the centre.

The draw date will be Saturday, May 6, 2017 when the centre holds its seventh annual garage sale.

“We’re very excited to accept this donation,” said LSRS Executive Director Paul Goldberg. “We cannot thank Mr. Leonard enough for his generosity.”
