Sunderland Special Olympics

A popular annual event which continues to gain support.


Teams of varying ages and disabilities from all over the North East and North West took part in this year's event at the pool at the Raich Carter Centre in Hendon.

Our President Elizabeth Wortman was asked to present the prizes along with John Lipscombe, who has been involved for a number of years.

They had a tiring, but very enjoyable day.

We will again be helping with the finance for a coach to take members to the Rotary North East Games for people with disabilites, when this takes place in July.
