for wheelchair users.

Mrs Boadle, 63, said it was
great Leeds City Council was making the rink so accessible
to wheelchair users and those with disabilities and encouraged
people to give it a go because it was so exciting.
The gran-of-three said: "You just go 'wow'.
(Leeds) is a project managed by Voluntary Action-Leeds.
Cube is the UK's largest temporary outdoor ice rink.
It is supported by the Yorkshire Evening Post and Radio
Aire and will be open until Sunday March 8.
"One of the issues for many wheelchair users
in particular, but probably also for people with sensory impairment,
is that the ability to take risks can be limited by non-disabled
people – for the best possible reasons." She said: "I have
a powered wheelchair which will go on the ice. "It's not controllable
in the same way – but it's enormous fun. "The manual wheelchairs
can self-propell but the marshalls can push you, which is
a wonderfully exhilarating feeling."
(Leeds) provides an opportunity for groups of disabled
people, and voluntary and community groups working in the
field of physical and/ or sensory impairment to work together
to share information, to represent the interests and concerns
of disabled people and to improve communication between the
voluntary/ community sector organisations and groups, and
the statutory sector.
