Do you dream of adventure?
If you have a disability it can be hard to find the money to help your dream come true.
The idea for the charity Wicked World Tours came from Patrick and Ali Knox who wanted to see the ‘wicked world we live in’ and to research what the potential was for wheelchair users. to enjoy adventurous travel. The brothers were diagnosed with Friedreich’s Ataxia, which limited their mobility but not their imagination, and with a team of helpers and friends they undertook a fabulous journey. Between June 2003 and May 2004 they visited more than 50 towns and cities in 10 countries, fundraising for all the stages. They set up Wicked World Tours Charity so that their experiences could help make it possible for others to travel.
Wicked World Tours has benefited from the generous donations of supporters who believe that disability should not prevent people from travelling. The charity has set up a Grants Programme and invites people with disabilities to apply for money to help them undertake adventurous travel.
