Coningsby Helping Hands group recently purchased a new electric scooter for 90 year old Eric Knowles from Coningsby.

“Mr Knowles is a very active gentleman still helping out once a week at the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight,” said Debbie Money, chairman of Coningsby Helping Hands.

“His knowledge of the Lancaster is phenomenal.

“This scooter will give him the independence he so enjoys.”
