THE spirit of the Paralympics was brought to Sheffield during a day devoted to raising the profile of disabled sports.

Squad members from the Wolverhampton Rhinos showcased their wheelchair basketball skills to staff at the city’s Cadbury’s factory.

More than 100 employees took their newly-acquired skills to the makeshift court at the Hillsborough site.

Wolverhampton Rhinos player and Paralympic ambassador Josh Dunn brought his Paralympic torch along for the demonstration and spoke about his involvement with the London 2012 Games.

Alan Caron, the Rhinos’ coach, said: “The whole event was fantastic.

“Paralympic sports are very much in the public eye at the moment and Cadbury has done a great job of bringing the spirit of the Paralympic Games to Yorkshire.

“It was wonderful to see such interest among the Sheffield site employees for the Paralympics and, also, to see the great sense in pride around the involvement of Cadbury with the 2012 Games.”
