It’s not terribly often that heart-warming, human-interest stories get column inches in our industry – it’s normally about who’s making the most money, doing what and where. Which is fine for the most part, because, let’s face it, that’s what we’re here for. But every now and again, it’s nice to share a bit of insight into aspects of our business that we don’t often hear about.
On that note then, lets talk about kiddie rides, cranes and autism. I bet that wasn’t a sentence you thought you’d read today. Turns out though that the three have a closer relationship than you would imagine.
Let me explain. At January’s EAG International show at ExCel London I happened to be chatting to Richard Pike, the technical manager at UK kiddie ride manufacturer, Northern Leisure. While on his stand, he told me he had someone who he’d like me to meet. “She’s called Amber and she’s a huge kiddie ride fan who travels the country taking videos of them and sharing them on YouTube,” he explained. “She’s 14, autistic and fantastic. I just thought it might be an interesting story to share.”
