So, forward The Rascal Vista. Like all scooters, it is quite an expensive bit of kit, so I am deeply grateful to the many people who, over several centuries, have given money for grants to help elderly clergy in the Diocese of Lincoln. Many of them would never have seen a trundle truck ever but I hope they would be glad to know that they have given freedom back to me. I've never applied for charitable funding before (I've always seen myself as a giver rather than a taker) but a scooter which suits my needs is around £2000 and I need a new one every 5-6 years so I decided to go for it.
And it is wonderful! I've been shopping this morning without any fear that I would be stranded if the trundle truck broke down. And I am able once again to plan days out this summer. Fantastic!
