The most recent Connector Series event in Wellbeing Ubiquity’s Connector Series featured Dine In the Dark with Dave Kelly, who will have dedicated 20 years of his life to Daisy Inclusive UK in 2024.
Dine In The Dark was presented at Mamasan in Liverpool One by Joel Jelen and MOVE Netwalking in collaboration with the Anfield-based charity.
With a full house in support, the evening was a great success with Wellbeing Ubiquity’s founder Joel Jelen commenting: “Every time I mention Dave, I think about his compassion, humour, inspiration and the gratitude he has shown for being able to achieve what he’s done since 2004 because he’s never let his blindness define him.”
On either side of what proved to be a funny, educational, and sensory experience, fifty guests enjoyed a mix of networking and dining in the dark.
Dave Kelly summed up the night by saying: “It was fantastic for a small but growing charity like ours to be able to share in our aim to generate more empathy for what a blind person goes through everyday. We can never take our mask off. I’m so grateful to everyone who contributed to this event. It means a lot to us in helping to spread the word about the work we do, who we do it for, the disability awareness courses we offer for companies and organisations and I’m told everybody had a smile on their face when they left.”
