Rise and Recline Ltd. Display Star Quality at Disability Direct Event

Disability Direct is a Derby-based charity, providing vital information for disabled people since 1993.

Since 2011, Disability Direct has been hosting its live Do What You Want event, aimed at bringing together all organisations on the Do What You Want directory and providing local people with the best choice of independence enhancing services.

Rise and Recline Ltd is a proud member of the Do What You Want directory and attended the event in support of their client Derby Mobility Services. This year the event was held at the Roundhouse in Nottingham and featured over 80 exhibitors and over 1,000 disabled people from the East Midlands.

The event was also attended by Coronation Street actress, Alison King (Carla Conner) who couldn’t resist sitting in one of our Rise and Recline Ltd chairs.

Rise and Recline Ltd Managing Director, Samantha Langtree, said of the event: “This is our first year attending this event. It is a great way to get local organisations together and introduce disabled people to the wide range of supportive products available to them. It is also a wonderful opportunity for us to meet the visitors to the show and have a chat with them about our products, we will definitely be returning next year.”

The Do What You Want event was held at the Roundhouse in Nottingham on the 28th of October. We are sure that we will continue to support this important event in future years.
