In April of 2014, Newstart was able to donate a restored Hurst/Olds to Hearts of Durham to help raise money for our community. Hearts of Durham is a volunteer group working to support and reinvest in their community of Durham.
Gaile Kelly, 54, had her motorized wheelchair stolen sometime late Sunday or early Monday, leaving her trapped in her small one-bedroom apartment above a body-shop.
Yesterday, in a small ceremony outside Newstart Canada’s Kingston Rd. office, Kelly was given a scooter, a royal blue 2009 Daymak Boomer Buggy IV, free of charge, right off the showroom floor.
Baker said he decided to donate the scooter after reading Kelly’s story in the Sun yesterday. “When one person can give to another person it always makes you feel good,” he said. “She’s got the latest and the greatest, it’s got a full warranty.”
