A happy father, Garry, got in touch with us this week to tell us how the Tramper at Whinlatter has given his son, Oliver, an opportunity to share his enjoyment of the outdoors.
The father and son duo had never been out in the hills exploring together, because Oliver is a wheelchair user due to Cerebral Palsy. As Garry said, "I am a regular visitor to the lake district and enjoy hill walking and general outdoors activities. I’ve always wanted to be able to take Oliver out with me but because of the obvious access issues this has never been possible. I discovered your service online and we went over to Whinlatter forest last week to give it a try. It was fantastic, Oliver really enjoyed himself and we are planning a trip to Langdale next (a favourite spot of mine) to try that route. So, just wanted to say a big thank you for your vision in providing this service for the less able".
Thank you, Garry, for your encouraging words. And a very big thank you for sharing the picture of Oliver enjoying himself at Whinlatter. We hope you have many more wonderful adventures together!
