Tramper assists Ten Tors 2008

A skiing accident broken leg didn’t stop the Commandant of Dartmoor Military Training Area from playing his part in the running of the annual Ten Tors Challenge. Lt Col (Retd) Tony Clark OBE late The Parachute Regiment took to Tramper to get around Dartmoor and Okehampton Camp to make sure that support for the Event ran smoothly.

The 47th Ten Tors challenged 2,400 teenagers in teams of six from the South West to walk between ten of Dartmoor’s rugged tors on routes of 35, 45 or 55 miles. Starting at 7am on the Saturday morning and with a compulsory night stop, the youngsters had to finish the challenge by 5pm on Sunday. Checked before departure to make sure the teams were properly equipped, thereafter they had to be totally self sufficient. Unlike 2007, when the Event had to be stopped because of heavy rain and swollen rivers, this year’s weather was clear and warm enabling most of the participants to finish. Those who were unable to meet the challenge fell out and were escorted back to Okehampton Camp by road to be reunited with their families.

In parallel, 250 less able youngsters challenged themselves to travel on foot, wheelchair or on crutches distances of up to 15 miles in a day. Tony Clark said ‘Using Tramper for the weekend, made me realise how much guts it takes to live with a disability and to achieve the Jubilee Challenge. I was humbled by their efforts.’

The Ten Tors Challenge is organised by 43 Wessex Brigade with the support of the Royal Navy, the Royal Air Force, the Defence Training Estate, the Dartmoor Rescue Group and the National Park Authority.

Its purpose is to develop self sufficiency and teamwork, fitness and stamina, and an understanding, love and respect for the special qualities of Dartmoor.

South Downs 100 Mile Challenge

On Friday September 19th Sue Watson and Robin Helby completed an extraordinary eight-day adventure along the South Downs Way with the aim of raising money for the Disabled Ramblers. What made this attempt different from other similar walks is that Sue and Robin are both disabled and completed the trip by electric scooter without any support, helpers or carers. The aim was both to celebrate 2003 as the European Year of the Disabled and to raise funds for the Disabled Ramblers.

Sue has had MS since 1986 and Robin has a spinal injury but are both keen ramblers (Robin is Vice-Chairman of the Disabled Ramblers). They wanted to show that with the right equipment, they could be on equal terms with other walkers. Their plans involved stopping at a different location every night. All of their equipment and provisions would have to be carried with them, including medical equipment and battery chargers.

Setting off from Winchester, it would be 100 miles to the finish at Beachy Head, with an additional 30 miles to and from the overnight stops. This meant they would need to achieve a daily average of over 16 miles across very demanding rough terrain with many long steep climbs. Fortunately they both own Tramper scooters, Sue's was one year old and Robin's four years old.

Made by Salisbury based Beamer Limited, the Tramper electric scooter is unlike anything you will see in the high street. While being perfectly at home in the local supermarket, the Tramper really comes into it’s own in extreme conditions ranging from rough country paths and farmland to working its way through snow and ice. With large batteries and tyres specially designed for such conditions, Sue and Robin’s planned journey through some of the most picturesque countryside was well within the Tramper’s capability.

After eight days Sue and Robin triumphantly arrived at Beachy Head. Though very tired from the effort, they were elated by their achievement. "It was incredible for two disabled people to enjoy day after day of fantastic views through some of England's finest scenery. It was hard work but so rewarding and proves that neither distance nor terrain need be a limitation. Our Trampers performed faultlessly and coped with everything we met - we only felt we were disabled when we got off! With the Trampers help we will have raised over £2,000 for the Disabled Ramblers”, explained Robin.

Some of our volunteer helpers find that escorting the drives on a bicycle is a bit too much so this electric buggy is an absolute godsend!

Made by Salisbury based Beamer Limited, the Tramper electric scooter is unlike an ordinary buggy.

The "Tramper" is a real outdoor activity electric buggy designed specifically to cover rough ground, mud and grass safely. Holton Lee provide several of these machines for their guests to explore the 350 acres of the estate and they are well used!

A proud owner...

The BBC TV programme Cash in the Attic, where a member of the public raises money from unwanted items in their house, helped raise the purchase money for a new Tramper.

An existing Tramper owner, Sally Norman, moving abroad wanted to upgrade her Tramper before she went, and managed to get the assistance of the programme to achieve it.

At the end of the programme she was seen happily driving her Tramper away.
