VIDEO: Warrington Wolves’ legend Bennie Westwood was on hand to help Warrington Disability Partnership open their new shop premises at Golden Square.
The charity founded by Chief Executive Dave Thompson, has moved from their original Warrington Disability Trading premises inside the Golden Square shopping mall, to new larger premises facing out onto Sankey Street.
Deputy Mayor of Warrington Cllr Maureen Creaghan was on hand to perform the official opening, alongside Wolves’ legend Westwood, who has been a great supporter of the charity over many years.
During the opening Dave Thompson, who founded the charity after breaking his neck playing American football, explained how the Disability Trading Company had grown over the past eight years, starting off as a £30,000 business and now well on the way to becoming a £1.1m business.
Further expansion plans are proposed with the charity now looking to open another branch at Birchwood, adding to their other premises at Beaufort Street and Liverpool.
The new premises provide extra space for displaying disability aids as well as test driving scooters in store.
