ECDSA Donate Wheelchair
 
It is the continuing aim of Exeter City Disabled Supporters Association to enable disabled fans to attend games, and for this reason we have purchased a wheelchair that can be loaned out for use by supporters who need that little bit of help at Exeter City home matches. The wheelchair was recently handed over to Exeter City Operations Manager, Andy Gillard by David Jones, one of the ECDSA committee members and it is now available at St James Park for any fan who has need of it.

Any supporter who has a temporary need for a wheelchair, for instance if you have a broken leg or similar injury which means you cannot walk around the ground, will be able to use it. It will also be available for disabled supporters who do not normally use a wheelchair but find themselves temporarily unable to manage, or, indeed for any supporter, home or away, who may have a genuine need for a wheelchair on a match day.

 
If you feel you may need to borrow the wheelchair you are advised to contact reception at Exeter City before the day of the match to ensure it is reserved for you, although it may still be available at reception on match days if it has not already been reserved by somebody else.

 

There will be no charge for the use of the chair, but anyone who uses it is invited to make a voluntary donation to ECDSA.

 

This is another example of what ECDSA is doing to make attendance at Exeter City matches easier, and therefore more enjoyable, for disabled fans or those who are temporarily incapacitated.
