The Joey Dunlop Foundation, which runs operations at Braddan Bridge House, providing self-catering
accessible holiday apartments, is now equipped with two 3-phase electric vehicle charge
While the foundation says they haven’t yet had the need for electric charging units, they felt like it was only a matter of time before electrical vehicle drivers start to take up residence.
Joey Dunlop Foundation committee contacted Alastair Bayley, Manager at Edmundson – Walsall Electrical Limited and a keen supporter of the charity who has helped in the past, for advice on how best to install two charging stations.
Alastair called upon Martin Coyle, Managing Director of Manx Solar Electrical Limited, to fit the best equipment that would meet the requirements. Martin has assisted the Foundation before when the apartments were first opened back in 2010 and was pleased to take on the work. Andy Faragher of A&J Builders & Contractors was called upon to complete the necessary ground works. Andy has been a supporter of the charity for many years and has always been the main building contractor for works undertaken at Braddan Bridge House.
The Joey Dunlop Foundation is an Isle of Man registered charity that provides level-access self-catering holiday accommodation at Braddan Bridge House. The 5 self-contained apartments have specialist equipment that caters for those who have a disability. All apartments have accessible wet rooms and height adjustable profiling beds. Other equipment such as overhead hoists, air mattresses, commode shower chairs and automatic toilets are available to those that may rely on this type of equipment.
The charity also offers up the apartments to local residents that may require the use of the accessible accommodation whilst their own homes are being adapted for their needs. Booking enquiries can be made by contacting Gilly Keown, General Manager, via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 01624 677741.
