Wheel About Town 2019

Wheel About Town sees participants face off in self-propelled wheelchairs, completing tasks, earning points and winning spot prizes.

It's a great way to experience what it is like to be a wheelchair user as you complete daily tasks.

Each team had tasks to complete and these were accessed on their phones. When a team successfully completed a task, they were rewarded with points.

We were lucky enough to have David Seymour, MP for Epsom, partake in the event. He refused help and persevered, pushing himself to complete common daily tasks faced by those who are confined in a wheelchair.
