Members of Spalding Round Table are pictured at a presentation at Johnson Community Hospital in Spalding.

The Tablers were presenting wheelchair accessible scales worth just over £1,000 to the hospital.

The scales will be used to weigh patients in wheelchairs, who would otherwise have to be hoisted in an out of their chairs, with the potential to cause discomfort.

The scales will also be used by other groups in Spalding, such as nursing homes that have residents with mobility issues whom they would have struggled to weigh previously.

The money for the scales was raised from the Round Table annual boxing event at Springfields.
