‘Sports for All’ Festival in Blackburn
Creative Football and the Social Inclusion Service recently held their ‘Sports for All’ friends and family festival in Blackburn, for the people we support with a learning disability. Over one hundred people and their families were able to join in with the sport and meet their needs in a fun way.
There were dozens of fun and inclusive activities or all ages and abilities, including wheelchair races, bat & ball, football, and guided walks around the park. The Mayor & Mayoress of Blackburn even joined in with the bat and ball race! “The Mayoress and I were really honoured to attend the Sports for All festival and take part in the activities, it was a lot of fun and was a fantastic inclusive event,” said Councillor Derek Hardman, Mayor of Blackburn. “It was great to see so many people there taking part and being active in so many different ways.”
