The gift of a new motorised wheelchair has given a disabled woman from Bonnyrigg a new lease of life.

Anne Lawson (66), of Wolsey Avenue, was presented with the chair at the Open Championship at Muirfield on July 17.

Her newfound independence comes thanks to the generosity of golfing charity Keepers of the Green (KOTG).

Anne, who lost the use of a hand and foot following a stroke in 2011, said: “I can’t believe this has happened but God works in mysterious ways. It’s brilliant having the freedom to go into my garden.”
