Pimp Your Wheelchair, it’s Time for the Great Yarmouth Wheels Festival

Great Yarmouth is set to be the site for an unforgettable parade as wheelchair users join together to transform their rides into amazing costumes.

The event is being organised by local charity Centre 81, which runs skills and activities for disabled people in the region, as part of the great Yarmouth Wheels Festival.

Though the rest of the festival focuses on classic cars and bikes, the wheelchair parade is quickly becoming a town favourite, with last year’s event drawing huge crowds and helping to raise both money and awareness of Centre 81’s activities.

Centre 81’s Skills and activities manager Julie Charles told the Eastern Daily Press “Last time people dressed as pirates, Elvis, Daleks and flower power girls – and decorated their wheelchairs too.

“We would like others to come up with some fun costumes and creations and come and join us. The day is all about wheels – from cars and bikes to wheelchairs – and about ensuring people with disabilities can be part of the action too.”

So no matter what kind of wheels get you excited, make sure you don’t miss the Great Yarmouth Wheels Festival on July 9th 2017!
