Leicester MP helps woman raise money for stairlifts

Leicester MP helps woman raise money for stairliftsWe recently reported that MP Keith Vaz was organising a number of events to raise money for a resident of his constituency after hearing that she was having difficulty getting stairlifts installed in her home. It has now been announced that his hard work has paid off and Peggy Taylor will soon be getting the stairlift she has been waiting over 5 years for.

The 83-year-old woman has told local media that she owes the breakthrough in progress to Keith Vaz, who even sold some of his own suits to raise money for the fee that Leicester City Council were asking from her. As well as having a stairlift installed, Peggy Taylor will also have a shower room fitted to help her continue to live independently in her own home and work on both of these projects will begin next week.

This news marks a triumph for both MP Keith Vaz and 83-year-old Penny Taylor, who will now get to see the benefits of these independent-living devices first hand.
