One community in Ernesettle, Plymouth has rallied together to help out one of their own.
Former firefighter Derek Ryder has been struggling to get around, with each day becoming increasingly difficult for Derek to venture out to his favourite pasty shop.
Terresa Mitchell and Sue Gamble work at Derek's local pasty shop which he visits everyday.
They noticed that Derek wasn't using his old mobility scooter as it had broken, so they began fundraising to get him a new second-hand mobility scooter.
Sue and Terresa spread the word and loyal customers dug deep on each visit and put some money for Derek in the donation jar.
The two ladies were able to surprise Derek with a new scooter, but the fundraising continues for replacement batteries. Each battery costs £160, and Derek will need two when the old ones run out.
Derek is a proud man who never asked for this, but gets quite emotional thinking about what the community has done for him.
