At the BETT Special Needs Fringe in 2007 you could spot the grandparents. They all queued up to have their photo taken with Bob the Builder.
None of the parents bothered; they'd had the delights of Bob most of the week and were too busy enjoying time out with free wine and canapés courtesy of Inclusive Technology. Three years later, the company and Bob have smashed their target and made £60,000 for Manchester's New Children’s Hospital Appeal.
