As part of the Motability scheme, which aims to provide transport for people with disabilities, Perrys Blackburn, Perrys Bolton and Perrys Nelson will be holding an evening event for 1600 customers to advise them on home and road safety.

Guest speakers include a fire safety officer who will take referrals for Home Fire Safety Assessments, a road safety officer and a crime prevention liaison officer offering advice on home security.

There will also be refreshments and free face painting and lucky dips for children attending. Perrys will also host quizzes, a prize draw and give out goody bags for customers to take home.

Motability experts will be available to offer advice and Millercare will be raffling a scooter at the event, which starts from 2pm on 22 October in Blackburn and 5.30pm on the same day in Nelson.

Perrys is a premier partner of the Motability scheme which offers discounts and modifications on vehicles designed for people with disabilities.

Modifications include steering wheel balls, storage space for wheelchairs and a host of other adjustments to tailor a vehicle to the customer.
