Penny’s Blog: Which of our members and member groups will be at Disability Pride?

Well by the time you are reading this I am hopefully enjoying the sunshine in Italy – I know isn’t it awful when people have to tell you they are on holiday when you are so busy at home and work, but at least I remembered to do this before I went, well hopefully I did!

Disability Pride is drawing nearer, and below are just a few ways our members and member groups have got involved so far:

Get on board with Martin and his boma for his cycle challenge

Last week Martin completed his cycle challenge. At Disability Pride on the day, you can see footage of Martin’s journey and his boma which has taken Martin on many adventures.
