Norwich City and Football in the Community (FITC) have plenty of activities on offer to those with disabilities during half-term.

The multi-sport coaching for children are courses that run from 10am to 2pm and cost £10 for two days. The events take place at City of Norwich School and Dereham’s Northgate High School on October 25 and 26, with three more events running on October 28 and 2 at Lynn Grove High School in Gorleston, Attleborough Junior School and Cromer Sidestrand Hall School.

Activities on offer include football, cricket, basketball, short tennis, rugby, multi-skills, hockey and boccia – a specially adapted game of bowls – all under the watchful eye of the FITC disability coaching team.

Disability officer Laurence York said: “The aim of the programme is to give the parents and carers of children with disabilities valuable and much needed respite time. The children will be taking part in fun, safe and engaging activities, led by our experienced disability coaching team. Parents can also request one-to-one care.”

• For more details on the courses of FITC, contact Laurence on 01603 761112.
