A WOMAN confined to a wheelchair because she suffered from multiple sclerosis has contacted The Hunts Post to thank a group of young men who rushed to her aid.

Kim Ward, 49, from Wilberforce Terrace in Huntingdon, was being pushed home from shopping by her son, Cailean, 14, when her wheelchair hit an uneven piece of pavement.

She said: "We were on our way home from Sainsbury's in Cowper Road and I just went flying into the road.

"My son was shaking like a leaf, he got me off the road, fortunately, there was no traffic but he wasn't able to lift me.

"We saw a group of about six lads and they ran down towards me to help and lifted me back into the chair, then another four of them joined us and kept asking if I was alright. I just want to say thank you to them.

"I would like to say thank you so much for your help, we would have been struggling without them. I don't know what we would have done. It was very kind of them.
