Thu 13th June 2019 - 'I thought I would just let you know about the excellent morning I have just had. Today I attended a sports event in Cambridge held for children with a variety of disabilities. The event was run by the County Sports Partnership & the Schools Sports Partnership and was held at the University’s Outdoor Sports Complex at Wilberforce Road, Cambridge.

Despite the dull weather 150 children took part and thoroughly enjoyed all the athletic events that were available for them to try.  Twenty 14 to16 year olds were also there from local schools acting as volunteer young leaders, an excellent way for them to gain leadership experience.

Wheelpower were there running some activities. I helped them and it was one of the most rewarding things I have ever done in Rotary.

Wheelpower are in the final stages of agreeing the date in November for our Sports Event for disabled children in Cambridge. I for one cannot wait.' - Rtn  David Ellis.


Cambridge South Rotary Club plan to make this an annual project, working closely with Wheelpower - Come and enjoy the first such event in the Cambridge City area this November.

It will be a great opportunity to network with other youngsters and adults alike.

On the day teachers, carers and students will converge on the Sports Centre for a day of exciting and fully inclusive sports.  8 or 9 types will be on offer - 45min sessions will be interspersed with refreshments and change over of equipment.  The Wheelpower Team arrive in vans full of sports wheelchairs, sports equipment and with experienced and supportive coaches.  Briefed volunteers will also be on hand to ensure the day goes smoothly.  Lunches will be provided.
