THE Morrisons Foundation has donated £8,000 to The Intersensory Club - a Barry based charity that provides specialist adaptive equipment and facilities for disabled people in the Vale of Glamorgan.

The support from the Morrisons Foundation will fund a wheelchair transporter bike at the charity’s adaptive cycling club for severely disabled children and young people.

This innovative piece of equipment will help wheelchair users to experience the excitement and exhilaration of cycling.

Treasurer at The Intersensory Club, Cliff Hayes said: “Thanks to the generous support of the Morrisons Foundation our Adaptive Cycling Club in Jenner Park, Barry, will be able to purchase a new Van Raam EMotor Wheelchair Transporter Bike, enabling many more special needs wheelchair users to access and enjoy the thrill and exhilaration of cycling on a regular basis.”

Barry Morrisons manager, Christian Oreschnick presented the donation to the charity.

He said: “I’m really pleased that we were able to help such a great local charity.

“Knowing that our support will make a genuine difference to people with disabilities in our community really does make me proud.

“Helping local charities is at the heart of what the Foundation is all about and I’m so happy that we can provide this grant.”

The Morrisons Foundation was set up by Morrisons supermarket in 2015 and awards grants for charity projects which help improve people’s lives.
