After making our debut appearance at the world-famous Disability Awareness Day (DAD) last weekend, we were thrilled when Founder and Chief Executive of Warrington Disability Partnership, Dave Thompson, presented us with an award for “Best Business Exhibitor”!
As we officially sponsored the event we also received an honorary award and certificate to thank us for our support, although in our minds those who deserved the real praise and gratitude were the dedicated volunteers and organisers who made the 25th Anniversary of Disability Awareness Day so incredible.
Over the course of the day, hundreds of people visited our 2 demonstration vans, many of whom had a genuine need for our products and services. The NRS Healthcare team took the time to advise them of their options whilst also providing them with a brochure to take away and browse through after the event.
Our Commercial Director, Steve Kennedy, was also filmed by local newspaper Warrington Worldwide. When asked why NRS Healthcare got involved in DAD as a business, Steve answered:
“Primarily, I met Dave and he inspired me to get involved in something which I think is very, very special. We at NRS Healthcare want to put something back into the community. We’re coming here for the very first time and we will be back again. The show is fantastic, with lots of people, lots of enthusiasm and lots of new friends being made.”
With this year being DAD’s silver anniversary, the team at Warrington Disability Partnership certainly pulled out all the stops to ensure a great time was had by all and Dave Thompson was thrilled to have our full support.
“Funding is always a struggle and sponsorship is getting harder to secure, which is why we’re thankful for organisations like NRS Healthcare for their financial support. 25 years is a huge milestone, one to celebrate and something to be truly proud of.”
We couldn’t agree more and would like to thank the team of people who gave up their time to represent NRS Healthcare so superbly throughout DAD, including Steve Gould, Nigel Johnson, Andrew Stevenson, Rachel Seabrook, Corrine Blood, Steve Kennedy, Albert Pickering, Matthew Spooner and Lexi Lomas.
