Challenging Disability Through Outdoor Adventure

Disabled Motoring Awards UK 2011

Disabled Motoring Awards UKCalvert Trust Kielder has been nominated for the ‘Mobility Sport Award’ at the Disabled Motoring UK Awards 2011.

The inaugural Disabled Motoring UK award winners will be announced at a prestigious ceremony at the Goodwood Hotel during the Goodwood Revival Festival this September.

Taking place on Friday 16th September, the awards will celebrate and recognise those people and organisations that have made a positive contribution to the day-to-day lives of disabled individuals or inspired them to live their lives to full, regardless of their circumstances. The Goodwood Revival Festival is the world’s most popular historic motor race meeting and the hope is that by running the awards alongside the nostalgic festival, the advancements made for disabled motorists will be clear and will help inspire another generation of achievement.

Nominations for each award came from members of Disabled Motoring UK and feature a range of companies and individuals from around the UK and beyond. Amongst the nominees for the ‘Get Going’ Award is motor-racing star Nicolas Hamilton, who is currently competing in the Renault Clio Cup, whilst the Manchester United Disabled Supporters Association are up for the Accessible Days Out Award. A team of judges from Disabled Motoring UK, the British Parking Association and Disabled Motoring UK’s marketing and events team The Lively Crew will decide the winners.

Disabled Motoring UK CEO Graham Footer said: “We are delighted to be able to launch this awards scheme which we hope will not only rightly recognise those people and organisations that make such a positive difference to the lives of disabled motorists, but also continue to inspire people to do more. The standard of entry for this year’s awards was very high and it is encouraging to see the level of innovation, care and improvements that are being made and our intention is to continue to grow the awards year on year and continue to highlight best practice.”

All of the team at Calvert Trust Kielder are delighted to be nominated for the awards and are keeping their fingers crossed to win!
