Warwick Community Group has secured funding to put on sport sessions at Knottingley Sports Centre for children with special needs.

Staff at the Pinewood Place community centre decided to apply for funding on behalf of Mothers of Unique Children.

The group, which meets once a week at the centre, comprises mothers of children with special needs and disabilities.

The idea was to raise money to give their children the opportunity to take part in sporting activities such as boccia balls, indoor curling and badminton.

Mary Gladman, secretary of Warwick Community Group, said: “I successfully applied for funding from the West Yorkshire Sport Equipment Legacy Fund and Sported, an organisation which helps with the costs of running such courses.

“With the full co-operation of Knottingley Sports Centre we were able to arrange sporting activities once a week with a sports coach.”

The sessions are open to any child with special needs. They run on Fridays, 3.45 to 4.45pm, during term times, at Knottingley sports centre.
