Raceday fundraiser scooter finds new home in Rotorua

5 April 2018 – Rotorua resident Bill Parker* is the proud owner of a new Neo Saturn mobility scooter and his purchase is helping Age Concern programmes in Auckland and Counties Manukau.

When he took possession of the mobility scooter recently from Life Unlimited Store Rotorua branch manager Fraser Heron, Mr Parker said the champagne-coloured model would make a big difference in his life.

Bupa NZ, one of New Zealand’s leading healthcare providers, sponsored the scooter which was on offer at the Auckland Age Concern Raceday held at Ellerslie Racecourse in December.

Managing director Jan Adams said Bupa has a strong commitment to helping people live longer, happier and healthier lives.

“We’re proud to support the work of Age Concern and delighted that the scooter will help Bill,” she said.

The prize was for a Neo scooter valued up to $5000 and a personalised assessment by Life Unlimited Store Rotorua. After the assessment, Mr Parker had his heart set on the Neo Saturn which retails at $5350.

Life Unlimited Store general manager William Hughes had no hesitation in paying the difference knowing how much Mr Parker wanted the gruntier Neo Saturn. It has a maximum speed of 17kph and the large, slim-profile tyres ensure a smooth ride.

Other features include:

• Easy-touch control panel

• 360 degree swivel seat

• Delta tiller

“It really does suit Bill’s circumstances,” said Mr Hughes.

The Neo Saturn is backed by a three-year warranty on structural frame components, and 12 months limited warranty on batteries, electrical and other parts and is available in red, blue, champagne and silver.

Life Unlimited Charitable Trust is the exclusive New Zealand wholesaler for the Neo range of mobility scooters.

  • Bill Parker sadly passed away peacefully at home, surrounded by his family, on 1 April 2018. Our sincerest condolences to his family.
