Londoners with disabilities go ice skating

Dozens of Londoners with disabilities have taken to the ice for the first time, as part of a Europe wide scheme to promote sport and activity.

The skating session in Streatham was run by the national disability charity Sense, which says its aim is to make all types of sport, inclusive and open to everyone.


Mayana McDermott, Regional Sports Coordinator at Sense, said:

"As one of the lead partners for ukactive's European Week of Sports, we are really looking forward to providing a fun, accessible and inclusive ice skating session. We believe that everyone deserves the right to enjoy a physically active life, no matter how complex their disabilities are."
