5 wheel Quingo mobility scooter debuts in ITV’s Emmerdale

Emmerdale’s Sandy Thomas (played by Freddie Jones) has this week acquired a 5 Wheel Quingo Vitess mobility scooter – which will be a lifeline for Sandy’s character. As for all Quingo users, the scooter will be a welcome and safe means of remaining independent for Sandy, allowing him to stay involved with all the social goings on in the village.

Emmerdale has the scooter on permanent loan from Forever Active, the UK’s exclusive distributor of Quingo mobility scooters. Emmerdale contacted Forever Active directly and Group Marketing Manager Paul Benzie met props manager David Cowan, the Directors of the show and actor Freddie Jones on-set to help select the right scooter for the character. The Quingo Vitess, which is an 8mph, long range model was a great fit that can easily cope with the rugged terrain of the Dales as well as being nimble enough for the village stores.

Mark Nicholls, Managing Director at Forever Active, says: “A Quingo scooter is perfect for a character like Sandy – Becoming less mobile doesn’t mean you need to lose your independence and a Quingo can safely help you to get around, keep up with friends and family and remain part of the community – important in a small, close-knit town like Emmerdale.
To find out more about the Quingo Vitess in the UK call free on 0800 085 7555 and for those who missed the debut, viewers can keep up to date at or watch it on ITV on week day evenings at 7pm.

Young mum regains her independence thanks to Quingo

Sarah Pile was coping well with her MS – until she had her daughter Emily two years ago. Since the pregnancy, Sarah’s condition worsened and her independence diminished. She became wheelchair-bound and increasingly reliant on the help of carers.

But last Monday, Forever Active delivered a new 5 wheel Quingo Plus with a rain canopy to Sarah, on permanent long-term loan. The gift was the result of a campaign by her Multiple Sclerosis Centre – the Kent MS Therapy Centre – which asked Forever Active on her behalf.

“It’s been a complete godsend – I can’t thank Quingo enough,” says Sarah. “Scooters are expensive and we couldn’t afford one, but with my daughter just two years old, I was missing out on the important things and couldn’t even take her to nursery. All I had was a small lightweight scooter which couldn’t deal with the countryside roads in my village, or go out in the rain.”

Sarah says the new Quingo has changed everything: “I’ve only just turned 40, and before having Emily I could get around with sticks and even drive. Losing my independence was one of the hardest things to deal with. I need help in so many areas of my life now – but when I’m in the Quingo, I feel independent again. It’s so nice to be able to take her to school and to get out and talk to people again.

“My daughter loves it too – now I can take her to nursery, and she thinks it’s the same as her toy car. When she plays in the garden in her car now, she says: “Mummy, look, I’m in your car!”

Sarah found the Quingo perfect for her – as she’s quite tall, she was surprised at the leg room – and very pleasantly surprised by the design: “I couldn’t believe how stylish it was. And the seat is so comfortable and can be adjusted. I’m quite a tall person too and there’s so much room for me to put my legs out on the footplate. I didn’t feel hunched up at all. It’s so comfortable, which is important when you’re going to be in something for a long time.”

“Really, it’s given me my independence back. I can’t thank Quingo enough.”
