Very successful Disability/Older Persons Day held on 03/12/2018
On Monday 3rd December WCD in conjunction with Independent People with Disabilities organised its annual services and information day in the Mullingar Park Hotel.
The event was an outstanding success with testimonials from members of the public and service providers through the evaluations citing the event as excellent and very good.
40 different service providers attended the event which was the largest yet and over 200 people came along to the Mullingar Park Hotel
WCD would sincerely like to thank the speakers such as Mayor of WCC John Dolan, Mark Ahern from IPWD, Cliona Staunton Wheelchair Rugby, Rosemary Rice Disabled Riding, Minister Kevin Boxer Moran, Frank Murtagh CEO of WCD . In addition we would like to thank Olive Kennedy who gave us an exercise demonstration which will be very useful to help us all with wellness.
