Over the last 4 weeks LRC have been delivering some cricket sessions to a group of adults part of the Achieve With Us day service based in Hinckley. Achieve With Us provide a safe and secure environment where people with learning disabilities can develop their life skills in a friendly group.
The sessions were based at Trinity Community Centre and covered a wide range of cricket skills whilst also incorporating lots of fun games and competition between members of the group. The skills developed over the first 3 weeks were put to the test during our last session in what turned out to be quite a competitive game of pairs cricket! As the centre was being used as a polling station, a great opportunity was provided to get outside and make use of the local multi-use games area.
This session in particular showed how much the group had learnt and developed, and it was fantastic to see the bowling dispatched over the fielders heads on multiple occasions!
LRC and Achieve with Us are looking to work with each other again during the summer. If you are involved in the running of a day service or any group that works with disabled individuals and would like to get involved with some cricket sessions, please contact Tom Leonard on firstname.lastname@example.org or call 0116 244 2198
