Hi, my name is MileOak!
I am Head Teacher at Mile Oak Primary School. We have a young lad in our community who was born without legs. Our school council has decided that we would like to raise money to buy him a hand driven bicycle and at the same time, raise disability awareness at our school.
We decided that we would like to raise the money by setting up and charging our pupils to take part in some disability based sports. We thought the kids could have a go at wheelchair basketball, sitting volleyball and perhaps, some blind football.
I was wondering where we could get a loan of suitable equipment - wheelchairs etc.
The school is a large Primary School (530 kids) at the west end of Brighton.
Any contacts or help would be much appreciated.
