Join us for an accessible walk with Access the Dales
Join us in Malham, in the Yorkshire Dales on Friday 30th September where you can test drive an off-road powered Scoozy and explore karst limestone country at its best and the beautiful countryside of the Yorkshire Dales.
We’re delighted to be joining charity, Access the Dales, who are leading an accessible social walk as part of the YHA Festival of Walking – and you’re invited! You’ll also be able to learn how these amazing landmark features were formed with a guided talk about the geology of the area.
You can join us from 10am at the Lister Arms for a hub launch, and then at 10.15am from YHA Malham. This accessible walk has the option of a 2.5mile or 5mile walk and is suitable for mobility aids that are capable of handling rough terrain and steeper sections. The walk will include a guided tour with the opportunity to learn how the amazing landmark features were formed. Our helpful mobility advisors will be on hand throughout the day with products and guidance on safe driving. We will also be able to give information and advice on other products suitable for all terrain trails and how best to get outdoors with peace of mind.
Also at the event, Access the Dales will be launching their latest ‘Hub’ located at the Lister Arms in Malham. One of five new centres in the Yorkshire Dales, this Hub will provide free-of-charge loan of our donated Breeze Midi 4 so people can explore Gordale Scar and Malham Cove. TGA has always been committed to helping people achieve independence with confidence so regards these donations as vital. We are proud to support Access the Dales in their brilliant efforts to increase accessibility in the countryside so that everyone can discover new paths and trails. We’re looking forward to helping out at this accessible event, so that even more people can experience everything the Yorkshire Dales has to offer.
Access the Dales founder, Debbie North, says: “Being enabled to experience the stunning countryside around the UK can really help strengthen mental health and wellbeing. By having the right mobility product for individual needs, a world of opportunities can be opened up as difficulties with walking are forgotten. Freedom to explore should be everyone’s right – Access the Dales alongside TGA will continue striving to make this happen. We are grateful as ever to TGA for their support, both with the ongoing Hubs centres and our forthcoming Festival of Walking.”
