This year's QEF Mobility Event - Get Going Live - was more successful than ever as it added a live driving aspect that meant that anyone could try out a modified vehicle on our private track.
Opened by the Mayor of Sutton, Councillor Steve Cook, the event say over 30 exhibitors demonstrating vehicles with adaptations, and offering advice on mobility for people with disabilities.
There were also talks from the DVSA about the special measures for taking a driving test with a disability, and Graham Race from QEF’s Tryb4uFly talked about the Accessible Aviation project.
We couldn't do all we do without the help of our amazing volunteers. To say thank you, we took our volunteers to Loseley Park for lunch!
As well as being an opportunity for us to express our gratitude for all their hard work, it was a chance for them all to catch up and chat in this beautiful venue.
