Thanks to the help of local businesses and donations we have been able to add a new Veloplus at Warrington Wheels for All.
Thanks to the generosity of two local businesses in Warrington as well as that of the general public, we are delighted to announce the addition of a new Veloplus cycle. An adapted cycle for the use of those in a wheelchair, giving people the chance to feel the freedom of riding on a bike and maintaining our inclusive nature of the charity. The two local businesses, Solvay and Enterprise Van Hire, have been incredibly kind. We want to thank them massively for the giving they have shown as well as that of the public who have also given very generously.
To celebrate the new arrival, on the 9th of June we held our normal session as well as inviting a few guests from Warrington Disability Partnership, who got right into the thick of things. Not only making use of the new addition but trying out the range of other inclusive and adapted cycles we have on off.
