Senior Occupational Therapist Annette Abbott announced:

“Each year visitors ask us to arrange for more companies to come so they know about the latest products available so this year we have included kit for adults as well. We have had a great response from companies wanting to come and meet professionals who recommend products and end users and their families as not only do they get to meet their customers but get their valuable feedback too. As a result of so many companies being interested, this will be the biggest event of it’s type in Yorkshire.”
