A Welwyn Garden City charity’s equipment centre has undergone a speedy spring clean and re-fit.

Herts Action on Disability (HAD) recently unveiled its new-look centre.

Extra space has been created by dispensing with the unused multi-sensory room and this area will now house the popular beds and seating clinics, where consultations and assessments can be carried out in a more private environment.

The project was managed by HAD trustee Mike Thompson, who said: “By investing funds very kindly raised by the RO Group in Potters Bar, the centre can now provide a better shopping experience for our customers.

“There’s more space to browse, and by creating another cash desk we have accelerated the payment process too.”

The equipment centre refurbishment is the first step in an ongoing project to update and improve HAD’s premises at the Woodside Centre.

HAD enables older and disabled people to lead an independent life.
