Disabled people are often prevented from making the most of their lives because of the barriers that stop them working and taking part in everyday activities. Assistive technology can change that. The British Assistive Technology Association was set up to campaign to raise awareness of AT and to encourage the development of new technologies. One of the areas BATA is keen to promote is aids for people who have a vision impairment. To fund activities in this area members are undertaking a sponsored walk in the Peak District. A group of members set off on a 25km hike between Bakewell, via Ashford in the Water to Tideswell and finally Ashwood, the initial letters of the four places spelling out BATA . After a long day 4 very tired but happy council members made it to the finish line! Your support would be much appreciated and will help our work of advancing the cause of assistive technology.

  1. An epic walk which had everything but a great time as well. SJ did an excellent job of organising and encouraging us to walk. Sorry for me being so slow. Only now is the feeling returning back to my legs! Now all we need is to reach our donation target – still time to donate folks so let’s do it!
