I was thrilled to be asked to join the team, as planning events is where my heart lies. Like everyone else, the concept of a festival for disabilities, really caught my imagination and we have been overwhelmed by the level of support to date. With the help of a team, we are looking forward to bringing together all the leads and putting on an amazing day every year!
My grown-up son Carl has Cerebral Palsy, so I’ve lived with the frustrations surrounding parking, accessibility and all the other issues that inherently affect those in wheelchairs.
As co-founder and manager of SNAAP, a Kent disabled children’s charity, I have both knowledge and experience of planning and running events for different disabilities and am thoroughly looking forward to working on Festability.
