We at Robert Bell & Company were proud to support the recent 2022 Disability Games, organised by the Rotary Club, and are looking forward to getting involved again in 2023.
A report from the organisers:
The District 1070 Disability Games were held on Sunday 24th April 2022 at Lincoln's beautiful Lincoln Christ's Hospital School (educating in Lincoln since 1090). Disabled competitors of all ages took part in archery, darts, kurling, table tennis, weightlifting, boccia, swimming, wheelchair slalom, and wheelchair dash. Unfortunately the shooting had to be cancelled for technical reasons, but the organisers quickly replaced it with basketball hoop shooting. This proved immensely popular, so it will definitely feature in next year's Games.
Nearly 120 competitors came from all over the Rotary district, which includes Lincolnshire, Leicestershire, Cambridge, Northamptonshire, and Rutland.
VIP visitors for the day included Rotary District Governor David Morris, the Deputy Mayor of Lincoln, Rosanne Kirk, and Team GB Paralympian (Boccia) Will Hipwell. They all helped award the winners trophies during the day.
Simon Kalson - "I have been involved in the Disability since 2021, including the National Rotary Games until they ceased. The Games are very complex to organise; however the rewards are immense, and I have always felt they are one of the greatest community events we are involved in. Seeing so much fun and enjoyment makes it so worthwhile."
