We attended the Blue Badge Access Awards 2022 in Manchester on the 28th of April. We were nominated for various awards and went to celebrate the success of the accessibility community. The founder of Sesame Access (Charlie Lyons), Director of Commercial Development (Alison Lyons) and our close friend Alex Vasquez all travelled up to Manchester to celebrate together.
