    Story

    Andy had a passion for the Yorkshire Dales and if he wasn't at home, he would be found up on the fells. Andy was an inspirational Deputy Head of a primary school in West Yorkshire for many years and made a difference to the lives of so many children.

    Life changed significantly when Debs was diagnosed with spinal degeneration and since she became a wheelchair user the pair of them have become ambassadors for accessibility to the outdoors.

    Following a short illness, Andy sadly passed away on 29th June.

    Andy has asked that people dig deep into their pockets (he knows that this can be hard for the Yorkshire folks like himself!) to donate towards the purchase of an all terrain wheelchair specifically for children. This will be located in an idyllic spot in the Yorkshire Dales where families will be able to borrow it and will be able to share beautiful moments and enjoy the landscape that brought Andy so much happiness.

      What a great day I had yesterday doing a take over on the Instagram story for Ordnance Survey. It was a great opportunity to share our story and showcase what access for all is all about.

      Hi Debbie I was very sorry to hear your sad news. Sandra and I met you both trialling a Terrainhopper and Andy was very patient and helpful with me. His enthusiasm was infectious, as you say! Love, H
