Seth Thuita from Wellingborough, an Interior Architect with disabilities, is delighted to have been appointed as an official Ambassador for the 2017 Mobility Roadshow, taking place this year at NAEC Stoneleigh, 1-3 June.
Seth, who has a permanent Polio Paralysis condition, is an enthusiastic advocate of this annual consumer event and has been a regular visitor since 2007. As a show Ambassador, he joins an inspirational group of dedicated volunteers who raise awareness of The Mobility Roadshow through their communities and network of contacts.
Organised by Mobility Choice and Goose Live Events, The Mobility Roadshow incorporating Get Going Live! is Europe’s largest test-drive event. Visitors have the opportunity to test and compare the latest assistive vehicles, adapted steering controls and new mobility product innovations all in one location. The popular Get Going Live! feature focuses on the needs of young and novice disabled drivers aged 16 plus. It provides essential advice for those seeking solutions to adapted driving for the first time and the chance to test drive vehicles under the supervision of professional drivers. Seth is delighted to be promoting these features this year having personally benefitted from attending and finding life-changing products to assist his disability at previous Mobility Roadshows.
Seth comments: “I am thrilled to be championing The Mobility Roadshow this year as I feel very strongly about the value of the event. I discovered The Mobility Roadshow through a University Disability Club and attended for the first time ten years ago. I really enjoyed the experience as the exhibits were so useful and applicable to my life. I remember buying a “Flexyfoot” for my crutches which cushioned the impact of my weight on my shoulders, thereby making my movements more comfortable. This encouraged me to walk more and improved my health in the process. I thought the show was such a success as it showcased more mobility equipment than I had ever seen before.”
Seth adds: “The Mobility Roadshow is a great shop window for any disabled person who is determined to improve quality of life. In fact, by attending the event and keeping up to date with new products, my life was turned around and became worth living. I would therefore highly recommend this show to every disabled person, their carers, family members and friends.”
