Disabled motorists and their families can explore all their mobility options with ease this summer, by heading to Stoneleigh Park in Warwickshire for ‘The Big Event’.
Taking place on Friday 17 and Saturday 18 May 2013, The Big Event will showcase the biggest range of cars available on the Motability Scheme in the UK, as well as a whole host of fun family activities throughout the day such as meeting Billy the Bear and free goodie bags.
Hosted by Motability, the leading car scheme for disabled people, The Big Event will showcase over 80 vehicles from 20 manufacturers, over 30 models of scooters and a wide range of car adaptations and Wheelchair Accessible Vehicles for visitors wanting to find out more about the type of vehicle that would best suit their needs.
Expert Motability advisors and specialists will be on hand to answer questions for those thinking of joining the scheme for the first time, or to advise customers looking to renew their Motability car. Both drivers and passengers eligible for the Motability Scheme can choose from a fleet of 30 adapted and non-adapted cars to test drive – to avoid disappointment remember to bring along a valid driving licence and paper counterpart.
Come rain or shine, families can make a day of it at the Indoor Exhibition Centre with free parking, a free cup of tea or coffee and the chance to win an iPad mini. Little ones can meet Billy the Bear and get creative with face painting and a free kids pack that includes a colouring book and crayons.
Mike Betts chief executive, Motability Operations explains: “We’re excited to be launching our 2013 programme with ‘The Big Event’. Taking place over two days, it gives even more people the chance to attend. Stoneleigh Park Indoor Exhibition Centre is a great venue, and the huge variety of cars, products and adaptations on display means that visitors will leave feeling well informed and having had a fun day out.”
