Invite to try equipment

The Parkhead & Wansbeck Powersports Club are wishing to invite anyone with a permanent lower body disability to come along and try out the lift.

There is two years to the next Paralympics in Rio and you never know how good you are until you try.

The coaching will be overseen by experienced staff with recognised Paralympic equipment.

As a former Paralympic powerlifter, our chairman and co-ordinator, Fred MacKenzie, would be only to pleased to welcome all.

We would like to thank the Rothley Trust, Coalfield Regeneration and UK Coal for their help in acquiring all the equipment.
