Larry's lift gift spurned

IT IS in perfect condition and cost £2,500 - but when Larry Cohen approached charities to ask if they wanted a second hand stairlift, they said they had no use for it. Larry, of Stradbroke Grove, Clayhall was amazed when he was told by Red Cross, Green Lane, Goodmayes that they could not recycle the stairlift. But nothing could prepare him for the shock after he phoned a local NHS number and was also told they couldn't use it either."I am sure there is someone out there who is in desperate need of a stairlift," said Larry. I am upset that I have got a stairlift that no one can benefit from. "There is absolutely nothing wrong with it."
