Gladstone Brookes is sponsoring Paralympic athlete Adrian Derbyshire as he tours the country on his custom-made hand trike.
He will be visiting schools, colleges and universities to promote disability awareness and speak about the effects of hate crime.
Adrian took some time out of his Stop Hate marathon campaign recently to help out Warrington based charity, Making Space. The charity provides quality care and support to people with a wide variety of needs, including physical and/or mental conditions, learning disabilities and dementia.Embrace
Their services embrace every area of health and social care and aim to give each of their clients the freedom to enjoy an everyday life. Adrian was invited to speak at a special involvement conference to talk about his own experiences with disability and the need for help from volunteers.Motivation
“The charity invited me to address their inclusive involvement conference and I was speaking to 350 service providers and organisations about my life story, the need for motivation and the importance of volunteers in charity work,” he said.
