Euan MacDonald, who founded the charity with his sister in 2013, said: “Lots of families have memories of holidays in Blackpool, so it’s wonderful to see so many disabled people praising access around the Promenade and beyond.

“Since becoming a powerchair user, I’ve stayed at nearby Brickhouse Cottages while knowing that I could confidently travel along the seafront by tram or visit Blackpool’s iconic attractions without worrying about access.
