DISABLED children and young people enjoyed a day of fun and activities with their friends and families in a Sheffield park.

The first-ever Disability Sheffield Fun Day took place in Norfolk Heritage Park and attracted hundreds of children who flocked to the event to play games in the sunshine. Youngsters got the chance to test their sporting skills in a mini athletics competition, and take part in penalty shoot-outs through a set of inflatable goalposts.

A bouncy castle was also on offer, and youngsters got the chance to build their own toy rocket in a junk modelling workshop.

The fun day was organised by Within Reach and Activity Sheffield to givechildren the opportunity to have their say about their favourite sports and things to do in the city.

Visitors were able to find out about Sheffield-based services such as the Parent Carer Forum, Autism Plus and Mencap at a series of stalls at the event.

Sainsbury’s supermarket provides refreshments for the thirsty youngsters.
