EDP Norfolk - - THE MARDLER -

Nor­wich School and Able2B, an or­gan­i­sa­tion which helps dis­abled chil­dren reach their po­ten­tial, are work­ing to­gether on a spe­cial project.

A ‘Dis­cover Your Abil­ity’ day will see chil­dren and young adults with a dis­abil­ity and the school’s pupils work in pairs to com­plete a chal­lenge with the sup­port of Able2B staff and volunteers.

The event will take place on the Nor­wich School lower school play­ing fields, and has been or­gan­ised in con­junc­tion with the school’s out­reach and sports de­part­ments. it has been sup­ported by Just4Chil­dren Char­ity, NANSA, Ir­win Mitchell, Dyno-rod and Busseys.

The aim of the event is to help raise money to con­tinue to de­velop the op­por­tu­ni­ties Able2B can of­fer in schools and to bring to­gether two groups of peo­ple who may oth­er­wise not have met and formed friend­ships. The or­gan­is­ers say that next month’s event will ‘show the com­mu­nity of Nor­folk that, by work­ing to­gether and truly un­der­stand­ing how to work with an­other per­son’s abil­i­ties and adapt to the dis­abil­ity, most things can be achieved.’
