What's on in Yorkshire in 2019?
Come out and try wheeling on and off buses, taxis and adapted cars on the Briggate at Leeds’ first Accessible Transport Exhibition! This event gives people an opportunity to have a go at getting on and off public transport without feeling rushed or pressured. Local transport providers will have stands where you can ask questions and find out more about accessible transport options.
You can try a range of sports at the John Charles Centre on March 16th! Join the fun from 11:00-13:00 for their Wheelchair Basketball sessions, or in the afternoon from 13:00-15:00 to try adapted table tennis! There will also be adapted bicycles for you to try, as well as Boccia (similar to bowls) sessions.
