People are being urged to take part in a climbing challenge to help pay for the refurbishment of a disabled charity’s centre.

Norfolk & Norwich Scope Association (Nansa) is celebrating 60 years of supporting people with disabilities in Norfolk, and is holding its first annual all-ability climbing challenge at the Highball climbing centre in Norwich on Saturday, May 31.

Nansa is raising money for its Diamond Appeal, to totally refurbish the 50-year-old adult and youth centre in Bowthorpe Road, Norwich, to create a modern, educational centre providing support, independence, arts, sports and employment training for people with disabilities and the wider community.

People taking part will be able to climb an 8ft-high climbing wall. The charity needs more than 630 people to climb the wall twice, to reach its fund-raising target.

Nansa is a local charity that supports, educates and helps disabled people in Norfolk to develop skills that will give individuals independence and life choices to reach their potential.

From small babies to mature individuals, the Nansa team is there every step of the way to support, creating exciting new initiatives and opportunities to give those with disabilities, and their families, full inclusion in society.

If you would like to try something new and to take part in this challenge, join Nansa at Highball climbing centre, 1 Twickenham Road, Norwich, NR6 6NG, from 9.30am to 4pm. Please also email Nathalie (fund-raising and marketing manager) on to book a time slot between 10am and 4pm or, for more information, call 01603 414109 or visit
