Disability sports in Spelthorne get cash boost

A sports club in Surrey for young people with disabilities has been given a £3,000 boost after residents voted it their favourite cause.

Spelthorne Disability Sports Club is run by volunteers for disabled people from five to 25 and their siblings.

Activities offered on Saturdays and in school holidays at Spelthorne Leisure Centre include football, basketball, athletics, rugby and trampolining.

A public vote took place to allocate the cash from a NatWest community fund.

Two runners up each received £1,000.

"I was delighted to hear that a club which makes such a difference to the Spelthorne community has been awarded the funding," said councillor Denise Grant.
