WCC steps in to help young games makers at Paralympics
Published Thursday 6th September 2012
Warwickshire County Council has today stepped in to make sure a group of young Games Makers from north Warwickshire have the remaining funding they need for their stay during London 2012.
The North Warwickshire Schools Sports Partnership has been working with the young people to make sure they could make the Paralympics as Young Games Makers. And throughout their stay they have been blogging their activities http://wp.me/P2Hmzj-G
In their blog today they said: "We also received fantastic news today, that Warwickshire County Council have offered to support the team in our fundraising efforts and have agreed to meet the shortfall we were facing. An amazing offer and a lot of pressure removed from the team in terms of how the shortfall was going to be met. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity, we weren't going to let the shortfall prevent us taking on this chance and now thanks to all the fundraising efforts to date, we can enjoy the experience even more.
"Our thanks in terms of fundraising must go to DHL for a contribution, Coleshill and St Thomas More Schools for hosting non-school uniform days, Nuneaton Rugby Club for hosting our fundraising event and various meetings, Asda and Tesco for allowing the team to do bag packing, family and friends who have supported all the way, Northern Warwickshire School Sport Partnership and Warwickshire County Council. Without all of you - this would not have been possible."
