Meet our amazing main character and TV superstar, Rae.
Rae kindly voluntereed to be the lead of our recent TV Advert, with a little persuasion from her daughter Jacqui who is part of our Ableworld Newport team. Rae was interested to see what it would be like to film an advert from behind the scenes as she had never done anything like this before. She was quite certain it would be a “Unique and fun thing to do”.
On the day, Rae was patient, hard working and most importantly, made us laugh with her witty humour throughout the day. We are in agreement that all of Rae’s friends would describe her as ‘Fun Loving’, ‘Friendly’ and ‘Approachable’.
Rae admires all of those who have the confidence to stand up in front of an audience and sing, if she had to, her first choice on the karaoke would be ‘I will Survive’ by Gloria Gaynor. Whenever Rae has gone through tough times this song has been her ‘mantra’.
Rae loves anything sparkly or glittery. Shoes with glitter, T-shirts with sparkles on… you name something sparkly and Rae loves it. She even gets green with envy when she sees little girls shoes with heels that light up as they walk as she wants a pair herself!
We asked Rae who her hero was and she mentioned it was her Dad. She looks up to everything he instilled in her years ago. “At the time, when I was a teenager, I took no notice of it. But it must have lodged somewhere in my being because I find myself repeating those things and still, at my age, I try and live up to him” Said Rae.
We are delighted and honoured that we could have Rae as part of our TV advert as she was simply brilliant!
Ruby isn’t only a star behind the camera… she's also a star on the pitch as well. She enjoys to play football and she’s even been on the big screen watching her favourite team Aston Villa play. She watches her favourite team play alongside other ladies’ football as often as she can.
We asked Ruby who her hero was, she said “Miss Tomley, my teacher. She is lovely and I would like to be a teacher when I grow up. Or a footballer”
Ruby’s friends would describe her as friendly and her karaoke favourites would be, “Sweet Caroline” (Sang at the top of her voice) by Neil Diamond or “Shotgun” by George Ezra.
A fun fact about Ruby is that she donated 16 inches of her hair and raised £750 for the Little Princess Trust at the start of lockdown – to help other girls and boys.
We are so pleased we could have Ruby as part of our TV advert as she was utterly fantastic!
Meet Lindsey, one of the stars from our recent Ableworld TV Ad. Lindsey is a Store Manager at our Ableworld Newport store, and has worked with us for over 16 years!
When we asked Lindsey why she enjoys working at Ableworld, she said “I enjoy working for Ableworld as we are here for our customer's and I like to make a difference to someone's life by providing a service of care and products to help their needs.”
Lindsey is a bright and bubbly person which was easily showed on the day of filming our TV advert. Her ease to make everybody around laugh lifted spirits throughout the day. Her friends would describe her as caring and we agree with them too.
When we asked Lindsey who her hero is and she said her Dad. “He is always there for the family, that is why he is my hero”.
Fun Fact: If Lindsey was to sing on a karaoke night out, her go to song would be ‘Living on a prayer’ by Bon Jovi.
If you live nearby to our Ableworld Newport store then feel free to pop into store to meet Lindsey where she will happily help with any mobility or stairlift queries.
