I am so pleased you found a car that you like at the NEC Lynne. It sounds wonderful.

I am not eligible for the mobility scheme but have managed to find an ex-mobility vehicle. It's a three year old Citroen Berlingo and is being delivered next week. I have travelled in the local Community Cab Berlingo so know it is a decent ride. It has a very low mileage and wonder why the previous owner used it so little.

Thank you to everyone who offered me advice. I found the whole process a bit scary having never bought a second-hand car by myself before. I am now looking forward to going shopping with my daughter without the stress and worrying about getting in and out the car. I can also regain some independence using my electric wheelchair when we are out.
