The Calderdale Community Coaching Trust have added to their capacity for delivering a range of community projects in Calderdale based around health, activity, wheelchair sports awareness and participation. In a new partnership with the Halifax Wheelchair Rugby League Club we have purchased 10 sports wheelchairs and a new trailer for transporting this specific sessional delivery equipment.  To compliment these health initiatives, we have also been granted funding for 3 Blender bikes.  These innovative bikes use the pedaller's power, be that leg or arm power, to blend appropriate foodstuffs and, together with healthy eating and physical exercise messages, will be used in all areas of the Calderdale community including schools, charity days and corporate events.

 

Funds were gratefully received from CMBC small grants programme, Sport England and The Rotary Club of Elland, including a generous donation from Jocelyne Haigh in memory of her late husband Rotarian Derek Haigh
