After the sad news of the passing of Her Majesty the Queen, and as a mark of respect, we have taken the decision to cancel One Big Day Edinburgh on Saturday 17 September 2022.
As an active Chief Patron of Motability, the charity, we feel this is the right decision to honour her extraordinary contribution to the Scheme. Our thoughts are with the Royal Family at this time.
Lord Sterling of Plaistow, Life President and co-founder of Motability, has shared the following message on behalf of Motability, the Charity, and Motability Operations:
“It is with deep sadness that we learned of the death of Her Majesty The Queen.
“For nearly 45 years, Her Majesty has been the most dedicated and active Chief Patron to Motability. We have been privileged to enjoy her support and to celebrate many special landmarks in the charity’s history with both The Queen and members of her family.
“Everyone at Motability, and the disabled people and their families that the Motability Scheme has put on the road to freedom, wish to convey our deepest condolences to the Royal Family at this time of great personal loss.”
We apologise to our customers who were planning to attend the event in Edinburgh next week, but we hope you understand this decision. Unfortunately we won’t be able to reschedule for 2022, but we look forward to returning to Edinburgh in the future, and bringing One Big Day back for our Scottish customers.
