Amble Outreach 2023
Wetwheels Yorkshire's visit to Amble, Northumberland in August 2023 faced some challenging weather conditions but the 'friendliest port' didn't fail to deliver the joy.
Royal Quays Outreach August 2022
Blessed with great sea conditions and wonderful groups of participants, Wetwheels Yorkshire enabled many families to take part in a barrier free adventure on the sea. Kindly supported by Royal Quays Marina, North Shields, organisations such as Out Of Sight, Grace House, St Oswald's Hospice (Children and Young People) and our great friends at Special Lioness made sure the crew had to work long hours to make sure as many people as possible shared the joy. There were even dolphins!
