Grant will revive disabled sports sessions in Keighley

First published in News

A sports club for disabled children is to be revived with cash from Keighley Area Committee.

Bradford Disability Sports & Leisure (BDSL) will move to Keighley for Saturday sessions.

The club, which caters for eight to 18-year-olds, ran for several years in Cottingley and attracted youngsters from across the district.

The club folded last year due to lack of money and leaders but a £500 grant will enable sessions to begin soon in Keighley.

The new Junior Academy will run from 11am to 1pm at University Academy Keighley, in Beechliffe.

BDSL already runs Wednesday sessions at University Academy Keighley for disabled teenagers.

Anyone interested in their child joining the Saturday Junior Academy should call Dean Carroll on (01274) 437093 or e-mail bsr@bt connect.com.
