    Story

    Being able to enjoy some time on the beach with your friends and family is one of life's great pleasures. In Fleetwood we are blessed with a beautiful coastline and stunning views across to the Lake District, a perfect place to relax and have fun but not accessible to everyone.

    As a wheelchair user myself, I know how frustrating it can be to not get on the beach. In 2018 I just happened to be on the Promenade for the very first demonstration of a beach wheelchair in Fleetwood. I asked to have a go and that afternoon has changed my life!

    Almost exactly 3 years after I first heard about the plans, Fleetwood Beach Wheelchairs has been operating for over a year (between lockdowns) and I am proud to say I am a Trustee. We are a registered charity, run entirely by volunteers and rely on donations and successful funding applications. Read more at https://www.fleetwoodbeachwheelchairs.co.uk/

    I'm often down on the Prom to walk my dog and catch up with the regulars at Dave's Cafe by the Central car-park but now I'm also there most weekends to help where I can with this fabulous charity. It's been a lot of hard work to get the service started but the response since we launched in September 2020 has been amazing! People are saying it's the first time in years, sometimes the a first ever, they've been on the beach and the smiles, laughter and thank you's make it so worthwhile.

    So what's this page all about ... well I am planning to do my very own "Push the lights" in my wheelchair, along the Blackpool Illuminations from Starr Gate to Bispham on 29th October starting at 18:30. The route is 5 miles in total. I'll be accompanied by some of the Fleetwood Beach Wheechairs volunteers who will bring some of our chairs with road wheels on as their beach wheels would take a battering.

    If you would like to support me and Fleetwood Beach Wheelchairs please make a donation on this page, whatever you can afford. Every £ we raise is going towards purchasing more specialist equipment, our on-going costs, and you will be helping us to make memories for many more people.

    Thank you.

      What is crowdfunding?

      Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

      The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

      Do you know anyone in need or maybe want to help a local community cause?
