Free sporting events for people with special needs and disabilities

9The Vallance Community Sports Association will be holding their eighth annual disability sports day at Mile End Stadium onThursday May 19, supported by Tower Hamlets Council.

The free event will have a huge range of sports on offer that are friendly to people with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND), and had hundreds involved last year.

Activities include track and field events, football and cricket, soft tennis and plastic fencing, and inclusive cycling.

Boccia, the popular precision ball game played in dozens of countries at Paralympic level, will also be on offer.

For those who want a quick break from athletics, there will also be non-sporting activities including face-painting and mehndi.

The event also aims to signpost people to disability services in the borough including study support groups and the council’s Parents Advice Centre SEND forum.

The event will finish with a presentation of trophies and medals.

Participants just need to turn up at the stadium at 10.30am to register, and bring their own lunch. Minibus parking is available at the stadium car park. The event finishes at 2.30pm.
