Ola aged 3 from Newcastle with spinal injury wins Abacus Healthcare ‘Trevor the Turtle’ competition
Abacus Healthcare, has presented a cuddly ‘Trevor the Turtle’ to Ola Driver from Newcastle upon Tyne who won its competition at the DNEX exhibition at Newcastle Racecourse.
We exhibited our assisted baths, postural supports and services at the DNEX exhibition. The friendly and highly experienced Abacus product specialists also provided the opportunity to win the Abacus Mascot – Trevor the Turtle. This free prize draw was entered by Ola aged 3 who subsequently won.
Duncan Latimer, Abacus Area Sales Manager, has recently presented Ola with her winning prize at home. Ola’s mum Faye Driver comments: “Ola loves her Trevor the Turtle, she tells him stories every night and he gets lots of cuddles. We saw the Gemini bath from Abacus for the first time at DNEX and were very impressed. We are planning a self-build and when our new home is complete we will be choosing the Gemini. It is perfect for Ola’s needs, especially as we do not want a wet room. It doesn’t look like a device for disabled children, it looks like a nice stylish bath which is important to us. We can see how much easier it will be to get Ola from her wheelchair and into a bath.”
Duncan adds: “It was a delight to present Trevor to the Driver family, they are all lovely and Ola gave me such a big smile. I look forward to helping them with the ideal accessible bathing solution in the future.”
Abacus will be showcasing its range of accessible baths for the last time in 2017 at Kidz-to-Adultz-up-North
(16 Nov) and The OT Show (22-23 Nov).
