Competition time…

Earlier in the week, I was contacted by DisabledGo (a company that provides useful information regarding access to thousands of venues across the UK and Ireland) about helping to run a competition. Of course, I accepted because their website attracts a lot more readers than I do so fingers crossed I might get more traffic in the next month or so.

DisabledGo have recently opened an online shop, which sells equipment such as mobility aids for example to help disabled people live life, providing independence and choice. To celebrate the launch, a free £50 voucher for the new store is up for grabs and entry could not be easier. There is a competition widget on the right side of this blog but first I should explain the various ways to enter.

Follow DisabledGo on Twitter
Tweet about the competition e.g. I've entered a #competition to #win a £50 voucher for the @DisabledGo #disability store! Find out more: LINK to this post (this can be done once per day for multiple entries).

Leave a comment at the bottom of this post telling me your favourite thing about ‘The Adventures of Wheelchair Boy’ (keep it clean).

The competition closes on March 16th but I’d recommend entering now before you all forget.

As with all competitions, there are Terms & Conditions (not lots) so quickly check them at the bottom of the widget. All that’s left for me to say is good luck and if you’re a new reader, welcome to my blog. Feel free to have a look around and check out my archive posts.

Bye for now!


  1. Hello from a new reader. :) Great competition. I'm really enjoying your blog and love how you tell is like it is. :)

    I'm a part-time wheelchair user. I use my stick in the house but need my wheelchair when out and about. I have M.E.

  2. Hi, thank you reading and I'm glad you're enjoying my posts. I'm always looking for guest bloggers so if you want to wite about life with M.E. let me know :)

  3. Hi, I'm a new reader. I am housebound and have a bedbound daughter. We both have M.E. but I managed to have a nasty accident as well and am waiting to see how much I can improve from my inuries. Love your positivity. x

  4. thanks for reading and glad you're enjoying my blog. i hope you do improve x

  5. My favourite thing about The adventures of a wheelchair boy is the realism. It also makes you realise you are not the only person with a disability.

  6. I enjoy ur blogs I'm a haire breath away from needing wheelchair just found out my hip joint is crubled away and femur the same because I had 5 clots on leg the paiin is non descript also on oxygen 16 hrs day, I was worried about wheelchair but u make me feel better haven't even seen specialist but as I say There's always someone worse off.

    1. i'm very sorry to hear but as you have gathered, being in a wheelchair isn't the end of the world.

  7. Im a new reader and have had a look through and I love how refreshing it is and how it says how things are. It shows how being in a wheel chair isn't the end of the world. My dad has MS and can sometimes get quite miserable with it thinking everyone looks at him. I will be telling him all about this blog tomorrow.

  8. thanks for reading and i'm doing my job if the blog puts a positive spin on disability
