    My Grandniece has suffered from Cerebral Palsy since birth and has always had some difficulty with the movement of limbs etc. - so I was thunderstruck to receive information of what she was up to in France this summer….

    and as I am fairly useless in adding stories to the forum I would ask anyone interested to "Google " for SOPHIE HAHN whenever you find a minute or two….

    Cheers

    That is our determined 16 year old who is now practicing for Rio - which wouldn't surprise me...

    Thank you for bothering to check on how Britain gained two more medals in the disabled sports - Sophie is now practicing for the big one in Rio - and the family will be there to cheer her on

    Cheers

    Twice a year my son's school hold a fun day for children with disabilities, all the pupils at the school join in and help these children have a wonderful time doing things that they may not otherwise get to do.

    All the pupils of the school have statements of special educational needs, and most if not all have Behavioral, emotional and social difficulties.

    They also make things to sell in support of a charity that helps to fund a school in Uganda.

    I know that my son for one thinks that these children on opposite sides of the world needs their help and he enjoys the fun days (partly because it gets him out of lessons) mostly because he makes other children happy.

    His school teaches children from 10-18yrs old.

    Lewis Clarke? He missed a grand expeditionary name by a whisker, perhaps he will forge a new one himself :)
