THE Queen re­cently hosted a cer­e­mony at Wind­sor Cas­tle to cel­e­brate the 40th an­niver­sary of the charity, Mota­bil­ity.

Her Majesty has been the Chief Pa­tron of Mota­bil­ity since its in­cep­tion and she pre­sented five dis­abled peo­ple and their fam­i­lies with the keys to their new vehicles in front of 400 guests.

Ed­ward Todino, from Sur­rey, a dis­abil­ity ad­viser at Kingston Uni­ver­sity, re­ceived the keys of his first ‘Drive– from-wheel­chair’ Ve­hi­cle on the Mota­bil­ity Scheme — a Mercedes Sprinter which had been con­verted by TBC Mo­bil­ity Con­ver­sions at their pur­pose-built fac­tory in Dun­gan­non.

David Don­nell, man­ag­ing di­rec­tor of TBC Mo­bil­ity Con­ver­sions, said he was priv­i­leged to at­tend the event and meet Ed­ward and his family.

TBC Mo­bil­ity Con­ver­sions also con­vert a wide range of wheel­chair ac­ces­si­ble vehicles, in­clud­ing the VW Caddy Maxi Life, Ford Grand Tour­neo Con­nect and Citroen Berlingo. For more in­for­ma­tion, visit their web­site at www.tbc­conver­
