    Story

    Paul (known as Jacko to many of us) needs a mobility scooter now to improve his quality of life. He can only use his crutches for short distances and is getting less safe on these. Paul lives alone and can't afford to buy a scooter. We want to help him to ensure he can stay as independent as possible.

    Paul is well known through supporting Swindon Town FC home and away for many years and helping organise the Swindon Supporters In London Association in the late 80's & 90's . He's seen fairly often on the TV highlights programme waving his crutch close to the touchline either in celebration or consternation at the Robin's efforts as he sits in the disabled enclosure in the Arkells stand. But getting to the ground is gettng harder as well as just getting his shopping, getting to the doctors etc. Paul lives with chronic pain but tries to always keep a smile on his face and make sure everyone else has a good time.

    Any money we raise will go directly to Paul. Lets face it, STFC needs all the fans they can get and we also want to say thanks to him for being such a top bloke!

      We reached our target- thank you for your support. Paul is blown away by the generosity of friends, fellow fans of Swindon Town and everyone else who donated and shared our link. Scooter ordered with help also from the lovely people at Middletons who as well as as money off the purchase price, have included insurance cover. We also needed to pay for electrical works so he could charge it which was done this week. Paul is due to take delivery of his wheels next week. Please stop and say hi if you see him- he's love to thank you in person

      Hi everyone Paul and I visited Middleton's showroom in Swindon on Saturday. They gave us great advice and Paul test drove a few models. Pleased to report all scooters and all ankles intact.... We know now how much we need to get Paul the most appropriate scooter for his needs and still hope to raise a bit more towards this. We also need an electrician to come out to help us install a suitable charging point if anyone can help out? If not, I will arrange this as soon as possible. Thanks for all your help
