A NEW shop providing care and mobility products was opened by a Team GB Paralympian.
Sophia Warner did the honours and chatted to customers at the new Simplicare store on Dickson Road.
Sophia, who has cerebral palsy, came fourth in the 100m and 200m at London 2012 and is now the commercial director of UK Athletics.
Sophia said: “I fully support the Simplicare team’s philosophy – products and services which enhance independent living for people of any age with physical limitations.”
Store manager and local resident Glyn Tate said the opening was a great success: “Many customers left our store happy after being able to discuss their unanswered questions.
“There are many residents in Blackpool who need help with their care and mobility requirements and we are dedicated to being an accessible source of knowledgeable information.”
