8:00am Monday 24th September 2012 in News
The deputy leader of Bradford Council was on hand to celebrate the unveiling of a new sports club for people with disabilities.
Councillor Imran Hussain said he was delighted to see the opening of the multi-sports club, which is to be run by Bradford Disability Sports and Leisure at the Grange Interlink community centre.
The club has been funded to the tune of £19,600 from the Council’s Youth Opportunities Fund.
On Thursday, young disabled people attended the club for the first time.
Coun Hussain said: “I am delighted to see the opening of this club for people with disabilities to take part in a wide range of sports. Following the recent Paralympics Games, there is a large increase in interest in taking part. This, I hope, will help to achieve this demand”
Bradford Disability Sports and Leisure chairman Hilary White said: “I think this will highlight the increasing need to recognise the ability of disabled sportspeople rather than their disability.”
