Amazing news/update from Dominic at Worcester Rowing Club

“Disability sport Worcester/Sport Worcester funded Blind rower Susanna Barnett with Radio equipment just over 12 months ago. Not only is the equipment going strong we have had to buy another set for another blind rower (Harrison Keasey) who has joined us.

Myself and Susannah have been really busy in the rowing world taking our Blind Person fitting in with normal mainstream rowing show all over the country for the past two years.

Susannah has become quite famous and well known in the UK rowing worldand as such has brought other disability athletes out to get involved with rowing. Also to be more proud and prominent within their own club.

The culmination of which , just a starting point really , was the inclusion of Blind rowing events atour September regatta.

Rosie, the Winning Junior blind rower from City of Bristol Rowing club asked me on the day if she could keep her competitors number. When I asked why she said “Because I want to treasure this moment forever ” , I said yes of course and it quite got to me that one brief race in someone’s life would create a life long memory.But that’s the power of sport !

Anyway to finish off. Our sports Governing Body “British Rowing” have done a piece on the Blind Rowing at the Regatta which is good for us at WRC / The sport in General / The good name of the city of Worcester etc etc.”

Good Luck to the club for the future as they develop blind and disability rowing even further!

Europe’s only dedicated holiday centre for people with learning or physical disabilities is open

“Europe’s only dedicated holiday centre for people with learning or physical disabilities is open”

Europe’s only dedicated holiday centre for people with learning or physical disabilities is now open which means in many cases families, schools and organisations can holiday together in a purpose designed centre with all the facilities they might need for the very first time.

Very reasonably priced and with fourteen air-conditioned bedrooms two including full hygiene rooms with power hoists, a ground floor that is totally wheelchair friendly (no ramps or steps!), a soft play and sensory room, sensory garden with raised beds, restaurant, American self-catering themed diner, education centre, swimming pool with hoist, paddling pool, outdoor sanded play area and a petting zoo with animals chosen for their friendly nature (including meerkats) there is something for everyone. Just one kilometre away is the Portuguese town of Moncarapacho with its local restaurants and shops.  Also close by are excellent beaches, a waterpark, Wildlife Park, Adventure Park and a Zoo. You can enjoy the local markets and even visit Spain.

Set in the beautiful Algarve in Portugal just twenty minutes from FARO airport getting there is easy and means you don’t have a long journey or transfer. The Centre Algarve is managed by an English family and your safety, comfort and enjoyment is their goal.

We are a UK charity whose aim is to offer this unique holiday centre to individuals or families and in addition education trips/holidays to special needs schools and organisations that may never have had the opportunity to experience a holiday together in an environment that caters for their needs.
