College joins forces with Speed Of Sight Charity

Tuesday, February 14, 2017 College joins forces with Speed Of Sight Charity

Our co-founder, Mike Newman, facilitated a session to 30 Motor Vehicle students, promoting positive awareness around disability through group activity.
Mike Newman holds seven Guinness World Records and is currently the fastest blind man in the world on both land and water.
He said: “We wanted to work with students at South Cheshire College as they are the future in the automotive world and so it’s important that they are thinking about disability.
“For people with disabilities, these vehicles can be life changing – allowing them to experience the thrill of motorsport creates such a buzz.”
Level 2 Motor Vehicle student, Brenan Phillips, said: “This session has been a real inspiration – we have seen that people can still follow their passion despite hurdles. It has opened my eyes to a different side of motor vehicle.”
Assistant Director of Faculty in Engineering and Construction, Ryan Johnson, said: “Our work with Speed of Sight is providing our Motor Vehicle students with different considerations to make when in the workshop. They participated really well in this session, asking lots of good questions.
“We’d like to thank Mike Newman and Speed of Sight for taking the time to introduce our students to their charity and buggies. We look forward to continuing to work with them in the future.”
