On Saturday 1 October 2016, representatives of Leigh Day attended the Limb Power Junior Games at Stoke Mandeville Stadium in Aylesbury. 

The Junior Games launched in 2013 and has been offering children and adolescents who are amputees or ambulant disabled, and their siblings, the opportunity to engage in a range of sports delivered by specialist coaches, most of whom are also amputees or ambulant disabled.  This year, 65 children took part in a range of activities including sit down volleyball, archery, badminton, hand-cycling, tennis, indoor sailing, wheelchair basketball and an outdoor climbing wall.

The participants quickly moved from game to game and were filled with smiles and tons of energy throughout the day.  It was a great event and the Leigh Day representatives enjoyed spending time with the young athletes, their families and the volunteer coaches, most of whom take part in the games every year.  

The Douglas Bader Foundation was also in attendance and met with the participants to discuss their exciting new initiative, Bader’s Big Band.  Bader’s Big Band will be holding auditions for children and adults who are amputees or ambulant disabled to form a core line up of vocalists and instrumentalists who will then have the opportunity to perform at air shows, festivals and other widely publicised events.  You can read about Bader’s Big Band on their website.
