AN inspirational woman has finally returned home after a nasty fall during her recovery from a brain tumour.

And Gwen Pope can now look forward to taking things easy, thanks to an annual campaign which the Examiner runs with Huddersfield Pendragon Round Table.

Mrs Pope has received an electric reclining chair as part of the Christmas Wish campaign following a long stay in hospital.

The campaign asks readers to nominate worthy individuals and groups for a special treat or help after struggling against adversity.

Mrs Pope, of Deercroft Road, Salendine Nook, was nominated by neighbour Mrs Patricia Sykes.

She said: “Gwen is an inspiration to all her neighbours. She laughs and advises on everything and can’t wait to get outside into the communal garden where we live this summer.”

Mrs Pope was making a good recovery from a brain tumour towards the end of last year and was on holiday in Cleveleys, near Blackpool.

She fell from her motorised wheelchair in September and was in hospital in Preston for seven weeks before being transferred to Huddersfield Royal Infirmary at the end of October.

She came home in February.

Alec Jackson, of Huddersfield Pendragon Round Table said: “Gwen is truly deserving of having her wish granted, even though it took a while after Christmas to do so!”
