The day was grey and looking like we were in for another wet one. it was my first day back and i was looking forward to the Disability Games. We have been involved with the games for the past 3 years and it has always been sunny and dry.

Children come from all over the Yorkshire and Humberside region and it is always very well attended. The participants do a variety of different sports including bocha, javelin, archery and, of course, cycling.
