Wolfie Sets Sail on Local Project

Wolfie was delighted to join in the celebrations at Wildside Activity Centre, to publicise their recent multiyear funding award from Wolves Aid.

The centre, based in Whitmore Reans, works with children and adults of all ages including those with physical and learning disabilities. They also work with many external partners and providers including groups that work with those with disabilities and long-term health conditions including Hear Our Voice, Beacon Centre, Special and Mainstream schools and community users including Whitmore Reans Children's Centre.

The award, £6,451 over 3 years, will provide trips on their specially adapted barge 'Trebalisa' for those with disabilities. The trips will allow the participants to go on a day out with a picnic or meal. On board, there are ramps to allow wheelchairs onto the boat, a disability toilet and movable seating.

Liz Hoggarth, Vice-Chair at Wildside said

"This is the first year Wolves Aid has supported our charity. Our narrowboat Trebalisa is as popular as ever providing trips for families, schools, the elderly and people with disabilities. It does, however, cost a lot to run and maintain it properly. This Wolves Aid grant is very special for us."

Wolfie met enthusiastic residents from Coleman Street supported housing scheme, some young canoeists and the skipper of the narrowboat and enjoyed waving to those who were taking a trip along the canal! If you would like further details about the project, please visit www.wildsideac.co.uk
