The Wheelchair Sports NSW Roadshow is on its way to Bermagui to promote greater awareness of living with a disability.
Bega Valley Shire Council’s Access Advisory Committee is hosting the event and is encouraging local businesses, builders, contractors and community groups to take part in a series of 10 minute round robin games with 12 wheelchairs available for each game.
The wheelchair basketball session is being held at the Bermagui Indoor Stadium on 10 September 2015 and round robin games will start at 11:30am concluding at 1pm with lunch.
Event organiser and Access Advisory Committee member, Sue Thomas, said the roadshow is an excellent opportunity for raising awareness and understanding.
“The outcome I would love to see is that people have some fun, but ultimately gain a greater awareness of what it is like being in a wheelchair, particularly the access issues” she said.
