The event was aimed at all ages and pupils of all abilities.There were many schools that attended the event and a variety of sportswere on show so the pupils could take part in. Sports such as wheelchairfootball, golf, wheelchair badminton and the adapted bikes were a massive hitwith the young people from Tonyrefail.
“What was pleasing was to see everyone of all abilitiesenjoying having a go at these sports and it was encouraging to see so many young people integrate with one another, it was a very worthwhile and successful day,” Leon Bansal, 5×60 officer, Tonyrefail.
The feedback from the pupils was excellent and one youngperson from Tonyrefail even appreciated it to the extent that he said: “We do notrealise how lucky we are, when we see other kids that have disabilities thatstops them doing a lot of things.”
