Reg Nichols, chairman of the Great Yarmouth and Lowestoft REMAP Panel was one of a number of people representing the charity at the presentation of the equipment at the John Innes Conference Centre in Norwich. The equipment will be used by the Eastern Region REMAP Panels to widen the awareness of the public at large, and the disabled in particular, of the help the engineers can give to improve their lives. The service is free.

REMAP is a charity consisting of around 100 Panels each containing around 10 to 15 engineers and technicians and there are three panels covering Norfolk: There are 3 Panels covering Norfolk: Kings Lynn, Central Norfolk and Great Yarmouth.

Mr Nichols said: “Our remit is to 'make, modify, adapt equipment for the disabled in order to enhance their quality of life, where no commercially available equipment exists.”

The service is provided free - panel members give their time but encourage and seek donations.
