Young people from all over the country took part in Bromsgrove's inclusive swimming gala

DISABLED swimmers from around the country came to Bromsgrove Sports and Leisure Centre on Saturday evening for the inclusive swimming  gala.

The contest was organised by Dave White from Swim Projects and sponsored by Bromsgrove Lions Club.

The evening gave young swimmers with various needs the chance to use their skills against others in a friendly and supportive event.

Each swimmer took part in a variety of different races during the evening and were awarded with medals for their efforts.

A cup was awarded at the end of the races for overall effort throughout the evening.

The many spectators were treated to an impressive display of swimming skill while encouraging the youngsters.

Bromsgrove Lion President Keith Godwin said “It was an amazing evening with a fantastic display of effort from the youngsters which, at times, was quite emotional for parents as well as spectators.”

The Lions are hoping to put on another event next year with even more children taking part.

“The club would also like to thank Dave White for organising the event, Bromsgrove Cobbler Martin Connellan for donating the cup and Everyone Active for making the pool and staff available,” Keith added.
