All-terrain Wheelchair Loan Scheme

Please note, following Covid-19 risk assessment of this project, our beach loan scheme will not be operating from our beaches this summer. We are conscious our members may wish to experience the outdoors differently and therefore an alternative loan scheme is operating; subject to capacity and pre-booking. All-terrain chairs will be loaned to families for their sole use from our Larne office so we can decontaminate and sanitise before being loaned to differing households.

Chairs will be allocated, to existing Foundation members only, in order of receipt of booking forms.

To book a chair, please click on the link in your membership newsletter and read both the Hippocampe Guidance as well as the terms and conditions (within the booking form). Only then should you complete the booking complete the booking form and email it to events@maemurrayfoundation.org All the information you will require will be on this booking form and the Hippocampe Guidance.

This scheme will run throughout the Autumn and Winter – book your dates in advance to avoid disappointment.
Please note – if you wish to complete the booking form on your phone, download the Microsoft word app (this is free) and when you open the link, open in ‘Word’.

Mae Murray Foundation has been awarded the Queens Award for Voluntary Service

We are honoured to announce that Mae Murray Foundation has been awarded the Queens Award for Voluntary Service. We are humbled as this is the highest accolade a voluntary group can receive in the UK and are very grateful for the nomination.

As a relatively new organisation, this is incredible recognition for our 90 volunteers who have dedicated over 20,000 hours working to create real change for those who have been excluded from society, due to disability, medical condition, age or caring role. Each volunteer believes in our vision of building an inclusive society, where everyone can take part together side by side, recognising one another to be of equal and inseparable value.

The Queen’s Award recognises outstanding work by volunteer groups to benefit their local communities and was created in 2002 to celebrate the Queen’s Golden Jubilee.
In just 4 years we have created 3 Inclusive Beaches across Northern Ireland, introduced early years powered mobility and helped over 2000 people be more independent and participate in communities through summer schemes, family events and other social projects.

Our Chairperson, Alix Crawford says “I founded the Mae Murray Foundation to build societal change led by ‘lived experience.’ I am overwhelmed that so many wonderful volunteers have embraced this ethos. We are one community, one family and I thank you all, past and present for your dedication. This award signifies the difference you have made to the quality of life of others. Thank you.” #QAVS2020
