Story

"As we arrive safely back in London, one incredible journey ends - but our fundraising, is just beginning. Support us to help more disabled people come onboard a barrier-free Wetwheels.

Thank you - and see you on the water. Geoff Holt MBE DL"

Read the full story below:

"Paralysed from the neck down in an accident at the age of 18, I have maintained the passionate belief that anything can be achieved, given a positive approach and the support to help make that dream a reality.

There is something very special about being on the water. For someone with a disability, being at sea offers unparalleled freedoms. Your mind and imagination fill with things that once didn’t seem possible.

12 years after I founded Wetwheels, being onboard one of our amazing boats with our disabled participants and their families, still gives me so much pleasure. It never ceases to amaze me just what the sensory elements of being at sea – the movement, the sounds, the breeze, the spray – can do to positively affect a person's wellbeing, their sense of who they are and what they can achieve.

We have come so far in a short space of time, but my own dream to ensure no one is excluded from our vision, is yet to be fully realised.

Be part of this wonderful journey by supporting our Appeal as we continue to look over the horizon. Thank You - and see you on the water."
