Funds raised to improve sport facilities for disabled people
1:23pm Friday 22nd February 2013 in News
A TEAM from the charity Inner Flame have raised £180 to help disability sport in the town.
The group of 16 to 25-year-olds, who are all part of the charity’s Princes Trust group, presented a cheque for the money to Doug Imrie, of Swindon Council, on February 13 at the Delta Tennis Centre.
The money will be used as part of a Wheelchair Sports Access day for children, which is being held tomorrow.
Paralympic tennis player, Louise Hunt, was at the presentation to hand out certificatates to the participants and also played a game of wheelchair tennis with the team.
Inner flame, which was co-founded by David Wreathall, helps young people aged 14 to 25 discover their full potential, building up their confidence and making positive choices.
The charity runs various courses and team programmes to help young people get back in to work and build their skills and confidence.
