In June we saw an article in the local paper about SuperSports Kidz Club, a charity based in Norwich that runs various sporting events for children with physical disabilities. They were looking for sponsors to assist in paying for training and travel as from September the Norwich Lowriders, its basketball team, will play for the first time in the Great Britain Wheelchair Basketball Association.
We decided that we should support this local charity and so on Saturday 2 August some of the team went along to present a cheque for £500.
Sue Coombe, the club’s co-co-ordinator said: “This will certainly be a fantastic boost to our club, and especially to our wheelchair basketball team, which we set up just two years ago. We are currently in the process of joining the Great Britain Wheelchair Basketball Association Junior League. This means so much to the children, as they will get to play competitively for the first time against other teams from across the UK.”
