Optimum 100 Platform Lift for Adrenaline Alley
Visitors to Northamptonshire’s award winning social enterprise Adrenaline Alley® the biggest indoor skate and BMX park in Europe, will now have access to the new Upper Level facilities which will further enhance the Adrenaline Alley experience for skateboard / BMX fans and their families.
The Charity mission is to provide a safe and secure environment for young people in Northamptonshire to participate in urban activities and to be recognised as a leading provider of urban sports in the UK using a range of partnerships to become a sustainable social enterprise. Founder and Development Director of Adrenaline Alley, Mandy Young was devastated in late 2001 to learn that her son John had been the target of local louts.
Mandy Young explains “John had struggled through his childhood due to an
undiagnosed brain tumour from the age of 2 years. At 13 years old and free from
hospitals at last, he made friends with a group of local skateboarders and began
to live a normal life until one night John was attacked viciously by those who
knew of his health issues but disregarded them." Mandy and her family were
devastated, but were determined to turn the experience into a positive one.
Mandy and Paul's son John fell asleep on 17th September 2010 aged 24 years
Ability Lifts were contacted last year from an initial Google search. Mandy
Young again explains why she chose to work with Ability Lifts:
“Our initial telephone conversation with Paul Streeter of Ability Lifts put them immediately on our short list, due to their competitive prices and simple to install lift solution. Paul visited us here in Corby and we carried out extensive site surveys to determine the best position for the lift, taking into account our aims and objectives as part of our expansion programme. When we had finally secured our disability funding, Ability Lifts came back to to meet with our contractor, locally based Proway Builders to discuss the pre installation works, which was extremely helpful for our Builders as they had never been involved with installing a lift."
"Due to Ability Lifts excellent service and self supporting lift solution, we at Adrenaline Alley together with Ability Lifts delivered the project on time and to budget and we now engage with our disabled members so they can access the whole site and we can boast accessibility for all our visitors in the future”.
