Shadow Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, Rachel Reeves MP Presents Keys of Motability Car to Constituent


ACHEL REEVES, Shadow Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, and MP for Leeds West, recently presented the keys of a new Motability

car to her constituent Mark Porley. The presentation took place at Ringways Motor Group, Whitehall Road, Leeds.

Mark, 47, has Charcot–Marie–Tooth (CMT) disease,

an inherited neurological disorder. The car he collected is a Ford Kuga, his second Motability car on the Scheme, which is also fitted with a scooter hoist. Mark said: “My Motability car has given me back my

freedom. It is life-changing and I can’t imagine life without it. I have always taken an active role in the community and leasing a car with Motability means I can continue to do this. “Motability enables me to retain a great relationship

with my children. I can provide lots of support by taking them to school as well as with their additional daily activities. I can also visit family and friends around the country more frequently, including my mother who resides in a care home in Devon.” Rachel Reeves MP said: “Motability is an excellent

Scheme that provides a vital lifeline for thousands of

disabled people like Mark. I am delighted to be presenting him with the keys to his new car that will ensure he retains his independence.” Declan

O’Mahony, Director of Motability, commented: “We are thrilled that Rachel Reeves could join us for this special event in Leeds. Motability has supported more than three and a half million disabled people since it started providing cars in 1978 and we remain committed to supporting many more with their personal mobility.” More information about the Motability Scheme

PREVIOUS to my Sirus conversion I had a standard car with a boot hoist, but after a few years it became hard work transferring in and out of the car. When I saw that Sirus converted a car for a wheelchair user to sit up front next to the driver, i knew this solution would be perfect for me. Suddenly I could travel with no time consuming transfer, or having to rely on my partner to lift me into the passenger seat, it also makes his life easier and saves us time. The discovery of my Sirus car

instantly allowed not only me, but my family to regain a huge aspect of our independence we had lost for so long. Suddenly I found I had confidence, social inclusion, self control, all this slowly but surely came back to me when I sat upfront in my chair for the first time. Previously I’d choose not to leave the house because the effort of using my previous car became such a chore. My environment has never felt so inviting…New life here we come!” Kerry Lloyd, Sirus U Can customer. For further information call 0121 505 7777, or visit
