New Disabled Facilities Open At Adrenaline Alley

Our students from the Designated Special Provision attended the opening of new disabled facilities at urban sports centre Adrenaline Alley.

The sports centre has spent £140,000 installing integrated disabled activity areas into the park and has funded new scooters and trikes that can be used by disabled young people.

The funds came from Big Lottery – People’s Millions, Wooden Spoon, Wrten, Aimhigher, Northamptonshire Enterprise Limited and Adrenaline Alley.

The centre – which was founded by Corby woman Mandy Young – was opened on December 16th by former Northampton Saints player Martin Bayfield.

Our students played an important role in the consultation process.

Mrs Young said: “This project has always been close to my heart. To see disabled young people riding ramps in their wheelchairs, on BMXs, scooters and skates alongside able bodied people during our public sessions is inspiriting. The feedback from the general public has been immense.”

Corby Mayor Gail McDade, whose son Ryan attends CBA said: “These facilities are fantastic.

“As children get older they want to be able to do all the things their friends can do and so it is great that Ryan can now join in.”
