Able2B's 'Discover Your Ability' event to enter its second year

29 January 2020

This year our pupils will again participate in Able2B's 'Discover Your Ability' event which pairs a young person with a disability with a pupil from Norwich School.

 

Last year, ‘Able2B’, a local organisation offering fitness opportunities for children and adults with physical or learning disabilities, hosted their first ‘Discovery Your Ability’ event, in collaboration with Norwich School.

 

The aim of ‘Discover Your Ability’ is to pair a young person with a disability with a pupil from Norwich School; the pairs working together through a series of team building events, leading up to a final sporting challenge which takes place in the Cathedral Grounds.

 

60 young people were involved in last year’s event, which also raised valuable funds, helping to improve the opportunities offered to disabled people in Norfolk.

Miss Tivey who helps organise the event at Norwich School said:

 

"Following on from last year’s success, the event will be running again in May, and we are again encouraging involvement from our pupils. It is an amazing opportunity to not only help, but get to know somebody new; to go out and make some good things happen.

 

"Last year's pupils were inspired by their involvement in the event and reported that the experience was eye opening, giving many a new perspective on life. We are delighted to be able to support this project again and I am very much looking forward to it."

 

Norwich School has a long-standing commitment to working in the local community and is delighted to work with Able2B again for this year's 'Discover Your Ability 2020' event.
