The presentation took place at Hyundai dealership Pebley Beach in Paddington Drive.
 
Despite Madge, 76, having arthritis in one one shoulder and two hip replacements , she enjoys an active life in the community, and sees her new car as essential to remain mobile.
 
She collected the keys of a Hyundai i10 that she will lease for three years.
 
The Motability Scheme is marvellous," Madge said, who also received a bunch of flowers from Pebley Beach to mark the occasion.
 
"Using my Disability Living Allowance to lease a new car on the Scheme is so much easier, as it means I can travel safely and in comfort. I enjoy being independent and Motability plays a big part in supporting me with this.

My new car is a dream to drive. It has automatic transmission with power steering, which is wonderful as I sometimes have difficulty moving my arms.
 
 
 
Justin Tomlinson MP said: I am delighted to have presented Madge with the keys to her new Motability Scheme vehicle here in my constituency. As Minister for Disabled People I understand the importance of the Motability Scheme across the UK, so its fantastic to see first-hand how the Scheme supports those here in Swindon.
 
Mobility scheme
 
The Motability Scheme is the UKs leading car scheme for disabled people, and provides affordable, convenient, trouble-free motoring to over 650,000 disabled customers and their families.
 
As Hyundai & Suzuki Motability specialists, Pebley Beach offer a wide range of options for those interested in the scheme. 
 
"We're always here to offer a test drive and discuss how we can help you stay mobile," Pebley Beach owner Dominic Threlfall (pictured above right) explained.
