The long-serving boss of a Romford charity helping the disabled had his retirement marked in style last week when he was presented with a golden mobility scooter.

Michael Mitchell had been manager at Havering Shopmobility for 17 years, but officially retired during a day-long celebration at the store on Friday.

To mark his distinguished years of service, Mr Mitchell’s staff presented him with the customised scooter, complete with his name embossed across the front at the charity’s premises at The Brewery, Romford.

Jessica Evans. who will be taking up Mr Mitchell’s position, told the Recorder: “It was great, he was absolutely chuffed.

“He had a really good day and all the staff had a really nice time.

“There’s a real sense of community between us all and it’s a lovely place to work so it was nice to be able to send him off with a bit of a celebration.”
