DRAGONMOBILITY, A WORLD-LEADING CAMBRIDGE
In the run-up to the final consideration
of the Health and Social Care Bill in the House of Lords and Wednesday's budget
announcement, Andrew Lansley, in his capacity as MP for South Cambridgeshire,
took time out from his busy governmental duties to see for himself the
life-changing work being done by Dragonmobility, a Cambridge-based social
enterprise whose directors all live in his constituency.
Since 2005, Dragonmobility, led by Dan
Everard, a gifted design engineer, has designed, manufactured and supplied
innovative powerchairs for severely disabled people. Dan's designs - featured
in the London Science Museum
- have pioneered a revolution in the development of powered mobility since
1981, particularly for children.
During Mr Lansley's visit, Ken Dickson, Dragonmobility's Finance Director (and Managing Director of Axiom-e), explained that "The majority ofthe funds to pay for our
chairs come from charities and families and friends. Although Dragonmobility
is weathering the current economic climate, we, in common with many other small
manufacturing companies, find it challenging to access reasonable commercial
funding for growth. What we do is much admired by financial institutions, yet
it is left to ordinary people in need, like a family currently raising funds
for their triplets, who all need SnapDragons, to actually achieve it."
Andrew Lansley CBE MP said: "I was
immensely impressed to see the innovation and engineering quality of the
SnapDragon and other designs. What came through strongly was how Dragonmobility
see the person, not the disability, and are committed to restoring the
opportunity for all their clients to have all the mobility they want."
Axiom-e has been busy preparing more statutory accounts, tax returns and R&D tax credit claims for clients. All deadlines were met and tax repayments have been negotiated.
Axiom-e hopes you had a joyful Christmas and wishes you a happy and successful New Year.
