VIDEO: TGA highlights accessible routes for mobility scooter users in Lake District National Park
Mobility scooter manufacturer TGA and the Lake District National Park have been working together on some videos to encourage mobility scooter and wheelchair users to enjoy places they previously thought were inaccessible to them.
The manufacturer has stated that it is supporting the national park so everyone understands the well-being advantages of getting outdoors and how its products enable experiences that many may have thought impossible.
As a long-time supporter of Disabled Ramblers, TGA hopes that this latest partnership with the Lake District National Park will reinforces its aim of the past 30 years to encourage people to get out and benefit from fresh air.
TGA has professionally produced a 90-second film with the Lake District National Park team to epitomise the feeling of freedom that comes from exploring the park, which aim to show how awe-inspiring views, tranquil lakes and remote rugged landscapes can all be accessible for people with mobility challenges.
The Lake District National Park is 70 this year and provides 49 ‘Miles without Stiles’ inclusive walks for people who use mobility scooters, wheelchairs or walking aids, or who just want a low-level walk.
Emma Moody, Recreation and Sustainable Transport Officer for the Lake District National Park, is delighted with this new partnership as she explains: “We are committed to making sure the Lake District National Park is accessible for all and our partnership with TGA strengthens our aims to supporting inclusion and positive health and wellbeing.
“By working with TGA on these videos, we’ve been able to refresh our promotion of these Miles without Stiles routes, and share valuable advice from a respected mobility scooter specialist – all during the National Park’s 70th anniversary.
“We’re delighted to welcome more people to places that they previously thought were inaccessible, savour the memorable sights and take home lifelong memories.”
