STAIRLIFTS & THROUGH FLOOR LIFTS

BRADSHAW STAIRLIFTS

http://www.bradshawstairlifts.co.uk/telephone 07885 218703/020 8279 9190 or email: martin@bradshawstairlifts.co.uk
Recommendation by Carol Toms
I contacted Bradshaws when they offered to buy my old stairlift and was very interested to hear what they had to say.  It would be well worth making a call to them if you want to get a stairlift.

FREEDOM ACCESS LIFTS
Reconditioned through floor Wessex lifts at very affordable prices. see their website www.freedomaccess.co.uk – telephone 0800 7710213 or email:  mail@freedomaccess.co.uk
Recommendation by Carol Toms
I contacted Freedom when I could no longer use my stair lift.  They visited my home to see where it might be suitably installed and a week later their builders were installing the electrics, moving pipes and knocking through the hole for the lift. They left everything clean and tidy and ready for the lift fitters, who were equally as clean and tidy.  My reconditioned lift has been a “God send” and easily one of the best investments I have ever made.  It looks brand new and everyone who has seen it has been impressed.  Check out their website above.

MISCELLANEOUS

Hi my name is Michelle,  I was diagnosed with MS in 1998.  Naturally I was devastated  and it’s been a struggle but I decided to fight back – I want to be in charge of my life – not MS in charge.  Cake making and baking is always something I wanted to do so finally I made a firm decision to get up and do something about it.  I hope you like the result!!
When placing an order a donation will be made to MSTG
