AN award to recognise the tremendous work of Bracknell Shopmobility was given to Becky Pearce and Susan Lewis.

The branch recently won the best shopmobility in the country.

Helen Barnett, marketing directory for Bracknell Regeneration Partnership who presented the award, said: "I have to say that is a huge accolade. If you give consideration to how many towns there are in the country, Becky Pearce was delighted to receive the news. The Bracknell branch goes from strength-to-strength." Becky from Bracknell Shopmobility said: "It's wonderful to have won an award.

"Our members feel so much for us that they put us through for this award and it's wonderful.

"We weren't expecting to get anything, we thought we were just here as guests. It's nice that our members are so fond of us that they put us up for this, because they mean so much to us.

"So many people come to town and end up just sitting and having a chat with us instead of shopping because they have such a great time and that's all part of the fun.

"We even won some prizes in the raffle, which we'll put into our own raffle to raise more money for the shop."
