On Friday, 5 August, at 1pm, Disability Equality will reveal their new machine at their Church Street premises during an ‘informal get-together’, with a short speech followed by light refreshments.
The machine has been agreed upon and purchased by the DENW board of trustees under the leadership of former chairperson Dave Wilson, who sadly died before seeing it installed.

Chief Executive Melanie Close said: “Dave would be very proud to see something he supported finally installed in our building.
“We hope we never have to use it, but it’s comforting to know it’s there if needed.’
DENW celebrated its 25th anniversary in 2021, but the charity could not mark the occasion due to the pandemic.
