Thorne Family Support Group have been celebrating success after competing in the recent Rotary Disability Games in Scunthorpe.
The support group, who provide sport and leisure activities for people with special needs, attended the Rotary District 1040 Disability Games at The Pods leisure centre on Ashby Road in Scunthorpe.
The games saw competitors compete in a host of sports including weight-lifting, table tennis, boccia, new age kurling, rifle shooting, swimming, archery and darts.
Each member could enter three events.
Members of the Thorne group did extremely well with some qualifying through to the latter stages of their events or placing in the top two.
Brent Fullerton was runner-up in the male swimming; Lisa Harrison was runner-up in the female boccia; Roy Worral got through to the quarter-final of the male boccia while Deborah Goldspink got through to the quarter-final of the ladies darts.
Support group trustee, Sylvia Goldspink, said: “Everyone had a great day and we are proud of all the members who took part.”
She added: “A big thanks goes to to all the Rotary clubs for their hard work and also special thanks to Thorne Rotary for their kind donation which will pay towards the transport on the day”.
John Wakefield of Thorne Rotary attended the games on behalf of the club.
Mrs Goldspink also thanked the Thorne-Moorends Regeneration Partnership for their Community Chest grant of £800 towards staging events for the group: “The money will go towards paying our rent at Coulman Sports Pavilion and other places”, said Mrs Goldspink.
The disability games have taken place at The Pods leisure centre in Scunthorpe over the last three years with hundreds of competitors attending.
