> Middlesbrough ShopMobility
Middlesbrough's ShopMobility is a wheelchair hire scheme based on the first level of the car park area in Hillstreet Shopping Centre. The charity provides wheelchairs, scooters and power chairs for any person with mobility impairment to access the facilities of the town centre. With helpful, friendly staff and onsite parking facilities available (12 bays), the charity endeavours to provide the freedom to shop at your leisure.
The charity also provides escorted shopping. This allows people with no outside support the opportunity to be taken round the town or to shop without dependence upon family or friends.
The charity is normally open Monday to Saturday, 9 AM to 5 PM with the last hire time being 3:30 PM. From 26 November, throughout the Christmas period, extended hours will include Sunday, 10:30 AM to 3:30 PM and late night opening on Thursdays until 7 PM in December, when coffee and mince pies will be on offer.
Most of Hillstreet's shops are accessible for the ShopMobility equipment and with the added bonus of shelter and walls to the centre, the Hillstreet Centre, Middlesbrough is the ideal place for ShopMobility users to shop.
