On 27 May 2023, the inaugural Village Saturday breakfast took place with 34 villagers attending the event. After an enjoyable waffle breakfast, Neil Atkins gave a very interesting talk about the amazing Latter-day Saints charities wheelchair program. Wheelchair services are provided in accordance with World Health Organisations guidelines. In addition to the distribution of wheelchairs to deserving communities, Neil and Ineke arrange the training of organisations and their staff to correctly meet the needs of the wheelchair recipients.

Neil demonstrated the difference in types of wheelchairs and explained the need for staff to be able to recommend chairs suitable for the recipient and the terrain where the wheelchair will be used.

Our thanks to John Ferrier for initiating the breakfast, Chantel and the Feedem staff for ‘going the extra mile’ and Neil for his excellent and interesting presentation. Based on the success of the first Saturday Breakfast we look forward this activity becoming a regular monthly event.
