The Bentley Model Railway Club gets a lift from ALF

Article by Greg Fidgeon

Representatives from ALF visited The Bentley Model Railway Club last weekend to unveil a stairlift and plaque funded by the charity.

David Baker, a service amputee, had asked ALF for help because the club in Calne, Wiltshire, has a number of elderly and disabled members.

The Railway Club had provided the framework and ALF funded the lift itself, which will improve accessibility to the upper floor of its new premises.

ALF trustee Lt Col (Retd) Steve Fraser MBE was accompanied to the unveiling by Aaron Lewis’ parents, Barry and Helen. He said: “We are delighted to be involved with this project. Not only will it help existing members, but it will enable the club to invite other groups to use the facilities as they now have much improved access to the upstairs modelling area.”
