Stephen Fry supports AbilityNet

Celebrity Tweeter Stephen Fry, AbilityNet’s Patron Martha Lane Fox and Olympic swimmer Mark Foster were amongst the thousands of people who got behind AbilityNet's Look No Hands! campaign in May. The campaign was a fun way of raising awareness about how disabled people use everyday technology and was picked by The Telegraph as well as UK Fundraising, UK Marketing Network, PR Week and charity platforms such as Givey and Thunderclap.

Social media was a great driver for the campaign and messages from our celebrity friends helped spread the message to millions of Twitter followers. Corporate and organisational support was also extended by BT, BCS, Go On UK, Vodafone, UK Online Centres, WSP and the Business Disability Forum. They helped us reach almost 6,000,000 people through Twitter, and helped boost our profile in both online and offline press.

AbilityNet CEO Nigel Lewis said:

"Thanks to our supporters a lot of people now have a better idea of the challenges disabled people face every day. It was a fun campaign but there is a serious message about the work that AbilityNet does helping disabled people get the most from computers and the internet."
