Dozens get together for disabled sports day

DISABLED athletes from all over Doncaster turned out for a sports festival at Doncaster's Danum School.

There were 50 youngsters taking part in the event called Ability Day from both the borough's special schools and mainstream schools, participating in various sporting events at the school's Leger Way site.

Among the spectators at the event was the Doncaster Central MP Rosie Winterton.

She paid tribute to the competitors taking part in the games, and raised her concerns that the organiser, the Doncaster's School Sports Partnerships, faces being abolished under the Government's spending cuts, as she believes it has done much good.

She said: "I congratulate all the young athletes who are taking part in Ability Day.

"Doncaster's School Sports Partnerships have done a fantastic job in getting our young people playing more sport so it is a real concern that they are being abolished by the Government."
