David Moss, 70 from Cirencester, is a retired, international sales and marketing specialist who despite having five separate hip replacements and living with restricted mobility, has been able to continue his passion for growing fruit and vegetables thanks to a remarkable TGA mobility scooter.
Following the completion of an engineering apprenticeship at The Austin Motor Company, David’s career began in the road haulage industry and concluded in airport sales and marketing. These roles resulted in him travelling around the world and working in Malaysia for eight years, which he thoroughly enjoyed and has resulted in the country’s flag flying proudly over his allotment. During this time David was diagnosed with requiring a hip replacement and subsequently has undergone five operations which have resulted in him having some walking mobility, but limited to less than half a mile.

Despite living with Polymyalgia Rheumatica and Diabetes, Royalist Teresa Gibbs, 75 from Exmouth, is a retired Royal Marine MoD worker nicknamed ‘Her Majesty’, who can continue to offer voluntary support to her local Stroke Club thanks to a remarkable TGA Breeze mobility scooter.
Teresa has lived locally all her life and was born in Budleigh Salterton, approximately five miles from Exmouth. She has a daughter (53) and a son (51) who the latter was well recognised as a local postman until he was diagnosed with MS two years ago. Following this news, Nick Gibbs achieved a charity bike ride from John O-Groats to Land’s End in 2010 and still manages to assist his mother on good days. Thankfully, Teresa needs little help due to her independent spirit and TGA mobility scooter, which has allowed her to remain independent at home.
