New WheelchairSteve website launched on International Wheelchair Day – 1st March 2020

Today, 1st March 2020, is International Wheelchair Day and an appropriate day to launch my new website.

My original WheelchairSteve.com website was appropriate to my business activities since I formed the company in 2005. Now I’ve retired the business no longer exists, but the WheelchairSteve brand lives on through my new WheelchairSteve World website.

In the new website, I aim to post regularly about relevant events, activities, products, services, etc that are relevant to life as a wheelchair user.

While, this year, I’m not involved directly with a specific event to celebrate International Wheelchair Day, which I originally launched on 1st March 2008, the freedom my wheelchair gives me means that tonight, I’ll be able to play Carpet Bowls at Gildacre Fields, the Housing 21 complex where I live in Sunderland.

However, around the World, people have been holding events or posting about International Wheelchair Day on Facebook, Twitter, etc.
