Story

Due to a spinal injury I am unable to continue my hobby of hill walking. Previously I have walked the coast to coast, Cumbrian Way, Nidderdale Way and Dales Way. I just love it. I love being out In the open. Dad said that I should have been born in a field!  I still try and get out and about especially in the Yorkshire Dales. However my walking days are limited to what my wheelchair can tackle. I heard about an all terrain wheelchair that a can get a disabled person  to places that they thought that they would never get to. I would love to raise enough money to buy a tramper for the Yorkshire Dales National Park, so that other wheel chair users can borrow it for the day ad enjoy the beautiful countryside. You can read more on my blog site www.accessthedales.com

I have met with The National Trust and know exactly where the tramper will be homed at Malham Tarn. It will be available to hire out to the public and routes will be provided. I am pleased with the support I am receiving. £7,000 is a lot of money to raise. Thank you to everyone
