Orkney Action

Badminton game underway

It was a busy two days up in the Orkney Islands last weekend for tutors Charlie Forbes and Fiona Green.

After a pleasant drive from Inverness and bumpy ferry crossing it was right into the classroom to deliver to 18 participants on the Friday evening.

There was a great mix from PE staff to leisure centre staff, NHS support staff, coaches and volunteers which made for an interesting evening.

The following day was the Family Fun Day for young disabled people with a good range of sports on offer from boccia, badminton and climbing wall being the most popular. There were a lot of families present and some have now planned to get together along with some others to try and get a young sports group up and running.

A meeting is planned on the next visit in about May/June.
