Reach the Beach , with a little Wheeleez® help, has been heralded as an amazing success – surpassing all community expectations!
Balmedie Beach Wheelchairs (BBW), located in Balmedie Country Park, Aberdeenshire (UK) is a non for profit facility that assists children and adults of all ages and abilities enjoy the beautiful, golden sands of Balmedie Beach with their families, friends and carers.
Their project Reach the Beach began in 2017. Now this glorious 14 miles of beach is being enjoyed and explored by a more diverse range of visitors than ever before.
BBW have expanded their resources and now offer an extensive array of specially adapted equipment which caters for the needs of all ages, sizes and abilities. Not only is there a selection of all terrain wheelchairs, including the much celebrated, Wheeleez® Sandcruiser® and Sandpiper®. Also in high demand is Wheeleez® All-Terrain Rollator, and even an All-Terrain Baby Buggy… all of which feature the unique and distinctive Wheeleez® balloon wheels which navigate the soft sand with absolute ease.
BBW’s mission statement: ‘Many families are excluded from places that are inaccessible to wheelchair users and those with more hidden disabilities. This makes much of the countryside no-go areas for some in our community. The Balmedie Beach Wheelchairs project aims to change that on Balmedie Beach’.
Fiona , a founder from Reach the Beach, acknowledged Wheeleez® for the role played in their hugely successful program, whilst we at team Wheeleez® are simply proud to be part of their story and to have played a part in helping more people with mobility issues … Reach the Beach.
