Wenman Healthcare helps charity bring festival spirit to those less abled
Wenman Healthcare has helped young members of the community with life-limiting illnesses or disabilities enjoy a real festival experience by supporting Oxfordshire charity, Festival Spirit.
Dedicated to helping disabled people who never thought they would be able to attend a festival due to their illness or condition, Festival Spirit prides itself on making this dream a reality – and thanks to ongoing support from Wenman Healthcare ensures everyone can enjoy their weekend safe in the knowledge that the required support and facilities are at hand.
Just last week, Festival Spirit helped 6 young people fulfil their festival dream at the Wychwood festival in Cheltenham, with two further events, WOMAD Festival in Wiltshire and Wilderness Festival in Oxfordshire, planned in July and August which will take the number supported up to 30.
Having worked with Wenman Healthcare for a number of years, Festival Spirit remain impressed with the level of support they receive, as Steve Clarke of Festival Spirit, explains: "Wychwood Festival was our first event of 2016 and a huge success! This, of course, couldn't have been accomplished without the support from the Wenman Healthcare team – who have stored equipment for us for months on end, helped us to source specialist products, and ensured everyone had the right equipment and living aids for their individual conditions to enable them to enjoy the full festival experience."
"Our accommodation on site is a specially adapted marquee with hard flooring, heating and fully functioning equipment, which our guests depend on to ensure they have a fantastic time".
Managing Director of Wenman Healthcare, Ian Wenman, comments: "Wenman Healthcare is delighted to be associated with such a marvellous charity, who continue to offer local young people a memorable weekend away - and one that many would not have believed possible. I now look forward to continuing our excellent working relationship with Festival Spirit, and feel extremely proud that many more less abled individuals will be able to enjoy the festival experience as a result!"
Established over 30 years ago, Wenman Healthcare is a family run firm dedicated to providing bespoke mobility solutions and daily living aids to individuals across Warwickshire, Worcestershire and further afield.
