Lothian Disability Sport Successful in Bank of Scotland Community Fund Bid

Lothian Disability Sport (LDS) were fortunate to be awarded the top prize of £3000 through the Bank of Scotland Communities Fund last earlier this week.  This initiative welcomed applications from  a range of organisations, with a shortlist of worthy candidates being drawn up in each area across the country.  LDS were shortlisted against four other projects across the East Lothian region with public voting used to establish the outcome and which organisation would receive the funds of £500, £1000, £2000 and £3000 - with LDS coming out on top with 36% of the public vote.

The £3000 awarded has been ear marked to purchase two running bikes that will be hosted by Lothian Leopards Disability Athletics Club.  LDS and Lothian Leopards worked in close partnership on this process and many hours of hard work from the club coaches and volunteers helped significantly to achieving this deserved result. 

The running bikes can be used for individuals aged 3-4 years through to adulthood and are often used by athletes with Cerebral Palsy, although suitable for those with Muscular Dystrophy, Parkinson's Disease and other disabilities that may affect mobility and balance.  The bikes will provide a new and exciting strand to the club and offer additional opportunities for athletes in the region looking to get involved with sport.

A huge thank you to everyone who text, tweeted or cast a vote in their local branch, you have supported the development of disability sport in the Lothian region.
