TV Dr to open national mobility roadshow

The popular TV celebrity and Good Morning Britain’s Health Editor, Dr Hilary Jones, will be opening the 2015 Mobility Roadshow at Donington Park, Derby – 10am on 25 June 2015.

The Mobility Roadshow, organised by charity Mobility Choice, is the UK’s premier consumer event that showcases the latest independent living products and services (25-27th June). This year also provides the unique opportunity for visitors to test-drive the latest specialist wheelchair accessible and adapted cars around the historic Donington Park race circuit.

The highly respected medical broadcaster and writer Dr Hilary Jones rose to fame during the 1980’s as part of the TVAM breakfast team. After officially opening the show at 10am, Dr Jones will be touring the show to meet exhibitors and visitors, and to view the latest mobility technology available to help maintain independence.

Dr Jones said, ‘I am delighted to be opening this year’s Mobility Roadshow. I believe this is a unique and essential consumer event that can benefit a wide variety of people with mobility issues. I look forward to my busy programme at the show and meeting with visitors and exhibitors face-to-face to explore independent mobility in more detail. My work regularly highlights the importance of independence in terms of positivity, well-being and health, and the Roadshow promises to deliver an invaluable showcase focusing on these issues.’

Ann Frye, chair of Mobility Choice added, ‘We’re delighted to welcome Dr Hilary Jones to the event. I am sure he will be very impressed with the wealth of products and services that the show provides for independent mobility.’
