Grand Gala Dinner 2019

Wetwheels Yorkshire will be holding an evening of superb food, an amazing charity auction and special guests on Saturday 14th December 2019 at the incredible Star Inn The Harbour, Whitby.

Since then, Wetwheels Yorkshire has taken over 2,500 people onto the water including families from children's hospices such as Martin House (Boston Spa), FogetMeNot (Hudddersfield) and St Oswald's (Sunderland) in addition to almost 50 other, local disability organisations.

The evening will include an inpsiring talk by Wetwheels founder, Geoff Holt MBE, DL who is the first disabled yachtsman to sail solo around the British Isles as well as the first to cross the Atlantic.
