Its encouraging that people are now coming to say they are taking notice of the stall and that we're doing good work. One person came and ask if we were a charity - no we 're not..
A lady dropped off some stuff that she s not longer in need of - some shampoo 'Ready Bath shampoo caps' with some hoist slings and seat cover for wheelchair cushion.
Another lady, Mrs C, was so grateful that we researched tab pulls and neck and shoulder heat pads and got them for her that she wants us to visit her residential home to meet the other residents.
Yet another lady asked us to help her find a back scratcher for her husband. Not everyone of thesse products are strictly mobility aids - they are just to help in everyday life. And not all products are impairment specific - non disabled people also find them useful like Dyceum non slip mats and surfaces. (watch the video ) My brother has a mat on his car dashboard to stop keys etc from falling off and the electric tin opener, for example, is handy for everybody on the kitchen.
And sometimes you do not realise the potential of these products, I had not associated using non slip mats on my bookcase to stop books from sliding. That has proved to be so useful for me that I am using the roll I bought for the stall for personal use at home.
