DAD Just Days Away

Disability Awareness Day (DAD) is this Sunday.

More than 630,000 visitors have attended DAD and charities have raised more than £1 million since the event’s humble beginning three decades ago.

This year’s event, now the UK’s largest not-for-profit, volunteer-led disability exhibition, will take place in the grounds of Walton Hall Gardens in Warrington, Cheshire.

Visitors to the show will find more than 200 exhibitors covering equipment, transport, holidays, leisure, employment, support groups and services.

There will be a Sports Zone including scuba diving, a performing arts marquee, arts and crafts, silent disco, centre arena and family entertainment.

The show opens at 10am and entry is free. To find out more, see the feature on Disability Awareness Day's founder Dave Thompson in the latest edition of Living with Disability or go to
