The Paratreker Trail, all-terrain wheelchair can now be borrowed from a Yorkshire charity hub, creating opportunities for children with disabilities to experience the thrill of summiting a hill or navigating rough terrain.

The Paratreker is based at Ravenseat Farm, home of The Yorkshire Shepherdess, Amanda Owen, and patron of Access the Dales, the charity behind the initiative. The hub, which opened earlier this month during a week-long festival to promote access to the Dales, is aimed specifically at children with mobility issues. It is one of five similar centres run by the charity in the Yorkshire Dales National Park.
