About 10 years ago I bought these cheap earrings in town. I was out on a job. Doing independence training with a client. Preparing her to “catch the public bus” from close to her house to the city centre, so that she could attend the College of Commerce independently. She is a powered wheelchair user and her condition means that she can fracture bones on smallest impact. A few weeks ago our paths crossed again and I was delighted to hear the she is now doing a Masters at UCC! I always think of her when I wear these. #nolimits#accessallareas
Next Thursday is #makewayday again. It is there to increase awareness and to consider the needs of people with disabilities in the public places we all share. It is within everyones power to change. 13% of the Irish population have some kind of disability. Clip your hedge that hang over the sidewalk, take your bin in, don’t park across the dropped kerb! Consider all. This is a friendly campaign, so please don’t give out to us when we point issues out on the day! I’ll be out on the day too, in Cork county, supporting Make Way Day with Enable Ireland service users. We enjoyed it last year and are looking forward to this year. @sian_horn @westcorkfit @aclai_cork please share this as we can reach many more then. #inclusion#accessallareas#nolimits 🤚🏼♿️
Today we walked to the Spa and had a few treatments. And chips and Coke afterwards in the bar of the hotel. Because we’re worth it. #independence#nolimit#accessallareas @radissonblucork kindly accommodated us by letting us share a treatment room. Thank you!
