Brighter Future Workshop celebrated their very first Open Day on the 12th May with a fantastic response from the local people.
They were given a civil seal of approval when the Mayor of West Lancashire, Councillor Liz Savage and her consort Councillor Noel Delany were guests of honour. They were suitably impressed by the efforts of all the staff and volunteers who provide training for disabled and disadvantaged young people. The day was eventful showing all equipment from New and Refurbished items ranging from Scooters, Hospital beds, Wheelchairs and everyday living aids. The staff were on hand to explain all about Motability scheme offering a hassle free opportunity to try and test out equipment.
Brighter future pride themselves as a multi-award winning charity and a dynamic forward thinking business that is proud to have been awarded “The Queens Award”. They train young disabled people working alongside qualified technicians to refurbish unwanted mobility equipment that would be otherwise end up in landfill sites and get equipment fit for purpose.
The Open day was a huge success and people were urged to spread the word among the community about what services are provided.
Peter Cousins MBE, founder and chairman of Brighter Future Workshop Ltd, said: “Councillor Savage and the new mayor Neil Furey have also pledged to do what they can to support the charity”.
