Equipment for more (wheelchair) users at weekly Assisted Swim Session
Project Category: Informal community group
We meet on Tuesdays at the Egham Orbit Leisure Centre for our Assisted Swim session and have also recruited additional volunteers to help more wheelchair users. With the funding received from Greggs Foundation, we can now go ahead and purchase the equipment necessary to provide the extra changing room facilities and increase capacity.
We will purchase specialist wet chairs that can be used in chlorinated pool environments, plus additional changing equipment.
We currently have a waiting list and with this funding and the new equipment, we can invite these people along to our sessions.
We have just recently taken delivery of one wet chair and we are naming the first one Gregg!
