ROSCOE Turner’s passion for reinventing equipment to help disabled people has inspired the Midhurst and Petworth Rotary Club.
He spoke of his voluntary work with ‘Remap’ adapting and making things not otherwise available.
Rotary spokesman Helen Chapman said: “Before my husband Keith died, Rotary was asked if anybody had a spare golf trolley. Keith was too ill to play so he handed his over. “Roscoe explained the motor, battery and working parts were to be fitted to a walking aid enabling a woman, who could only walk on flat ground,to walk up a slope.”
Other items include an extension fitted to a handlebar so a little girl could ride her bike with the other children.
