Gary Riddell contacted police after hearing of the callous theft earlier this month to say he had a spare wheelchair which he was happy to donate to help 80-year-old victim Janet Conroy.
Officers are continuing investigations after Mrs Conroy’s wheelchair was taken from outside an address in Bainsford’s Gairdoch Street on Monday, April 9.
PC Ryan Smith said: “I am still appealing for information regards this theft and I am keen to trace the persons responsible.
“The gesture by Mr Riddell is a clear example of community spirit and Mrs Conroy was overwhelmed. I wish to thank Mr Riddell also.”
Anyone with information relating to this theft is asked to contact police on 101.
