TWENTY disabled teenagers enjoyed an array of sporting activities this summer at the Vale council's Disability Sport Camps.
Funded by an "Out of Schools" grant from the Children and Young People's Partnership, the camps were held for youngsters aged 12-18 in Cadoxton Primary School's sports hall every Thursday during the summer holidays.
The activity days were organised by Simon Jones, Disability Sport Wales development officer for the Vale of Glamorgan Council, and Post2Post Coaching provided coaches for activities including football, dodgeball, golf, boccia, basketball and handball.
Badminton Wales provided coaches to run badminton based activities.
Dragon Crossfit also provided an instructor who put on a Crossfit for Kids session.
Simon Jones said: “I’d like to thank the Children's and Young People's Partnership Team for funding the Disability Sport Camps throughout the summer holidays.
"Without the funding, the sport camps wouldn’t have gone ahead.
"I would also like to thank all the coaches and volunteers who have helped provide the activities for the young people - they're the reason the activities are enjoyed so much by the people taking part.”
