That is an honourable mission and task to help your friends,it doesn't surprise me as I know you have a generous heart,

Hi Max,
Here is a link to an international website linking buyers and sellers


. I haven't look at any of the adverts but hopefully it will give you a useful source. Are you looking for as much as possible or just equipment for 1 friend?

Hi Max;

Do you know how you are going to get things out there and collect them here. There is a national freecycle site which is split into regions. I am happy to ask on there for items for a charity and you could do the same.

I believe that he defective items from the equipment store get scraped, a big waste as walkers often only have a broken brake cable. I don't think that you could get your hands on these but it might be worth a try.

Let us know your ideas, love Terry

PS. It is right for you to ask and I will help you where I can

Hi Max
Marvellous gesture on your behalf - well done mate.
I hope the links and suggestions provided above are of great help.
I am sure the MNDA will also provide some help here as they are in touch with all members and some equipment may come their way surplus to requirements ?

Best wishes
