I have had the immense pleasure of visiting Edinburgh, Scotland 3times (January 2011, April 2011 and March 2012) over the last year and a half.

How Can you help??
I’m a 73 year old male with Heart Failure, which is under control My doctor says I can drive, and Fly. However I need a wheelchair at airports, -(no problem). I always fly KLM – Johannesburg to Norwich via Amsterdam, (Schiphol) and vice versa. I have a 3 bedroomed house in Norfolk. What I need is someone to lift my cabin bag into it’s compartment, together with my laptop, and to get my bag off the baggage roundabout. We’re met at Johannesburg, and I catch a taxi at Norwich.
My wife has a retirement cottage in Bryanston, Johannesburg, which she loves. Also the weather (sunshine). So we have decided that I spend 4 months of the year with her, and she spends 4 months in the UK with me. You will need overnight (or longer), accommodation at Norwich, and we have a guest suite (en suite) with a double bed and electric blanket, if necessary, and this of course, is free.
