The National Federation of Shopmobility is counting down to the deadline for this year’s Tom Hillier Awards. This year the award will be presented to the Shopmobility that has shown, by public nomination, that they have gone above and beyond for their clients. It will be awarded at the prestigious British Healthcare Trades Awards Dinner held in London on the 30th of November where the compere for the evening will be Baroness Tanni Grey-Thompson DBE. The evening is extra special as it marks the climax of the host company’s (the British Healthcare Trades Association) 100th-year celebrations. The BHTA have celebrated the 100 years with various events throughout 2017, including the annual golf day and afternoon tea at the house of lords scheduled for September as well as the publication of a book marking the BHTA’s evolution over the century.

The NFSUK office is proud to be taking part in Steptember. It is the brainchild of the British Healthcare Trades Association (BHTA) and one of their 15 sections the Stairlifts and Access Section. This section and some of the BHTA staff will be aiming to complete 10,000 each per day for the entire month of September. The challenge has been laid down to the entire membership body to join in. We hope many members will take advantage of the opportunity to increase their steps and help the chosen charity. We will be challenging ourselves to do this to raise money for the charity SCOPE who provide support, information, and advice to disabled people and their families.
