Lake District Coach Trip

In Saturday the 11th August Sporting Challenge had an enjoyable trip to the Lake District. The group went to Bowness on Windermere.  They went by a Don Fraser Coach from Burscough then Skelmersdale.  Once there the group did some sightseeing, had lunch and then finally had a boat ride on Lake Windermere. Then the group came home. The group had a great day and the weather was sunny.

The day was funded by grants from the Barchester Foundation, Burscough Parish Council, Skelton Bounty and the Lancashire County Council Champion for Youth.

Edward McCarthy: “I would like to thank the funders who made the day possible. The group really enjoyed today.”

Sporting Challenge were set up in 2008, they support adults with disabilities to take part in sports and social activities with staff support which gives their families a break.
