Inclusion club run super successful Festival
Mo Squires, Swindon NDO, and several others organised a mini-tournament at the end of last month for Swindon Vixens (now an England Netball Core Inclusion club). Due to England Netball changing the date of the Marion Smith tournament, the Swindon Vixens were no longer able to attend the event so the volunteers decided to organise a local opportunity for them. They invited players from the local Swindon netball community to come and play the Swindon Vixens.
Annie, a player from Swindon Vixens, reflects on the event and comments:
“What an absolutely awesome night! The Vixens and events like this are truly ground breaking. If there was just one person there who had never spent time with somebody with a learning disability before – and now they know that people with learning disabilities are just the same as everybody else…they want to live a normal life where they ‘fit in’ – then the festival has made a massive difference.”
