sported. helps launch new wheelchair rugby club in Plymouth

sported. is pleased to announce that through its ongoing one-to-one business support and a grant of £7,915, West Country Hawks will officially launch their new wheelchair club on Saturday 24th March 2012, at 2.30pm, at the Plymouth Life Centre.

With the support of sported. Mentor Lee Robertson, the club's volunteers have produced a three year development plan that outlines West Country Hawks long term vision of creating sustainable wheelchair rugby opportunities and a means of accessing competition for wheelchair users.

The West Country Hawks are the only wheelchair rugby club in Devon and Cornwall, and will provide much needed opportunity for wheelchair users to participate in this Paralympic sport.

Julian Wills, sported. Regional Manager South West said "This is a fantastic project, which will create sporting opportunities for wheelchair users in Plymouth and the counties of Cornwall and Devon. Lee has worked extremely hard mentoring the enthusiastic team of volunteers at West Country Hawks, and helping them to achieve their dream of launching this club."
