A convoy of mobility scooters through St Albans city centre is due to take place this weekend.

The 'Choppers for Shoppers' event, organised to raise money for St Albans District Shopmobility, will coincide with the Vintage Market on Sunday, June 18.

St Albans District Shopmobility is a scheme in which battery-powered scooters and manual wheelchairs are provided to those who require them in order to visit the city centre.


During the event, a convoy will ride along a pre-arranged route, whilst collecting donations from the general public.

Fourty mobility scooters will ride from St Peter's Street to 'Britain's Oldest Pub' Ye Olde Fighting Cocks, and back again.

The event will be started by St Albans MP Daisy Cooper.
