Outstanding commitment to volunteering sees GDS Vice Chair awarded BEM
Comments are off for this post.
Progress has been made in the development of inclusive trampoline opportunities in Moray thanks to a donation of specialist equipment.
Moray Sports Centre took delivery of a gently used Sag Bag kindly donated by John Wills of Banchory Trampoline Club. The equipment is beanbag-like with a wipe-clean surface and provides a safe and secure surface for people with profound disabilities to lie on whilst on the trampoline. Long handles allow the coach to manoeuvre the participant whilst rebounding them on the trampoline bed, enabling people with limited mobility the opportunity to enjoy the thrill, fun and sensory input of jumping on the trampoline.
The Centre is also fortunate to benefit from a Changing Places facility, an inclusive play park with accessible equipment, a well-stocked café and even wheelchair accessible picnic tables so is a fantastic venue for families to enjoy a day out.
We look forward to hopefully being able to offer inclusive trampoline opportunities in the near future!
