Oswestry, United Kingdom, August 21, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- North Shropshire College have successfully delivered three 1-day Disability Sports Camps at its Walford Campus near Baschurch. The camp has helped widen access and provide an opportunity for 12 people with an intellectual and/or learning difficulty to participate in a wide range of sports. The participants came from Oswestry, Wem, Shrewsbury and St. Martins. Each camp ran from 10am-4pm and consisted of short one hour sport sessions that included badminton, boccia, goalball, orienteering, futsal, football, tennis, basketball and various athletic activities which take place in both the Olympic and Paralympic Games.
Benji Evans, the College Sports Maker and organiser of the project commented, "The Disability Sport Camps have been really successful. I feel there are not enough opportunities for people with a disability to participate in sport in the area and through the College Sport Maker Project we have been able to develop this project. North Shropshire College is more than just an educational provider; we are proactive in identifying the needs of the local community. This project is just one of many that help widen access and promote inclusion. We aim to run more disability focussed projects in the future, particularly during the public holidays. I would like to take this opportunity to thank North Shropshire Special Olympics for supporting us and letting us use their equipment to run some of the sessions."
