DISABLED young people in Keighley finished their summer scheme with climbing, abseiling and canoeing.

Almost a dozen children and young adults spent a day at the Doe Park Water Activities Centre near Denholme.

The adventurous day ended a fortnight of sports in Keighley and Bradford organised by Bradford Disability Sport and Leisure.

BDSL spokesman Barry Thorne said around 100 disabled people aged from eight to 25 were involved in the various activities, which included cycling, cricket, football, athletics, multi-sports and kayaking.

Councillor Peter Corkindale, Keighley’s deputy mayor, officially launched the first week at University Academy Keighley. He also dropped into Doe Park on the final day to see how the entire project had gone.

Participants included young children with learning disabilities taking part for the first time.

BDSL organises regular sports sessions across the district, including weekly athletics training at University Academy Keighley, preparing for regional, national and international Special Olympics events.
