A GROUP of disabled youngsters in York celebrated Disability Access Day 2017 by exploring the city’s most famous landmarks.

The Ambassador Club, organised by the team at disabled children and young people’s charity Whizz-Kidz, is part of the charity’s range of services designed to help young people learn new skills, have fun and make new friends.

The club also provides an opportunity for young people to campaign on issues that are important to them, and push for local change to improve the lives of disabled young people in the area.

To celebrate Disability Access Day, the group visited Explore York and York Minster.

This visit will form part of campaigning activities that highlight the importance of accessibility in York that the group will undertake for the remainder of the year.

Whizz-Kidz has been supported by players of the People’s Postcode Lottery since 2013 and, to date, they have generously awarded nearly a million pounds to support the charity’s work.
