Island “so ideal” for the disabled
Lanzarote has launched a major campaign to promote the island as a fully accessible sports and leisure venue for people with disabilities.
The Cabildo last week signed an agreement with the organisation, Disgrup whose president, Guillermo Egido praised Lanzarote for its unique blend of attractions, particularly its landscape and culture.
There will also be a fund-raising campaign to help other disabled action groups and from August 5th, a special pen went on sale at a cost of one euro. It is available in hotels and other establishments and carries a solidarity message. The aim is to sell 25,000.
The agreement will last nearly a year and a half and include the promotion of Lanzarote’s name at all Disgrup charity events. The foundation will also bring a group of 40 disabled people to the island twice a year and will help to promote sporting events for those with mobility handicaps.
