Talking about the recent acquisition, Claire Dixon from Kingston Lacy says,
"I'm delighted that Kingston Lacy will be able to offer the MT Push to visitors who have difficulty with mobility, the estate grounds are beautiful - from the Japanese Garden to the sheltered walks through the woodlands - I want all visitors to have the same experience. I know how successful and well received the MT Push have been at our other sites, unfortunately I had moved sites before the MT Push were in place at Brownsea Island so I'm very excited to be able to see them in use at Kingston Lacy. The MT Push are the perfect wheelchairs to offer inclusive access around our estate and I know it will enhance our visitors experience - despite ability. I'm extremely pleased that we can offer everyone the opportunity to see the delights the site has to offer and I'm looking forward to seeing our fleet of 3 MT Push wheelchairs in use."
Tim Morgan, Managing Director at Mountain Trike says,
"Claire has been a great ambassador for Mountain Trike - her vision and ethos to offer inclusive access at the National Trust has been fantastic. We've received such positive feedback from customers who have visited the sites where the MT Push is available so I know that by offering visitors the MT Push at Kingston Lacy it will be of huge benefit to them and their visitors. It's great news that the MT Push is now available at another National Trust site and I look forward to hearing how they are being used."
