Euan is in the Power 100!
This week the Power 100 was launched. This is a list of the most influential people in Britain with a disability or impairment. We are thrilled to see that our very own Euan MacDonald, the founder of Euan’s Guide, made the list along with many other celebrities.
Mark Harper MP, Minister of State for Disabled People, welcomes Power 100 as a positive move to “recognise and celebrate an extraordinary range of disabled people and their achievements in all aspects of life, from education, politics and law through to sport and media. I want to congratulate those on the list for what they have achieved and for showing us just what is possible.”
Listing 100 of the most influential and inspiring disabled people in Britain it is no surprise that renowned physicist Professor Stephen Hawking, 72, who was diagnosed with motor neurone disease aged 22, tops the list. Professor Hawking endorsed Euan’s Guide in December last year and commented that:
“EuansGuide.com helps people with disabilities and their carers give an open and honest account of a venue's accessibility, good or bad. This means that users can check before they go whether a venue will cater for their needs. The site will make a huge difference for people across the UK, giving them a reliable source of information to help plan their leisure, personal and business activities.”
Professor Hawking is joined by Baroness Jane Campbell, Ellie Simmonds and Baroness Tanni Grey Thompson in the top ten. You can find a full copy of the list at www.edition.pagesuite-professional.co.uk.
