Wooden Spoon donates junior wheelchairs to Coventry Stampede
Wooden Spoon Warwickshire visited the Coventry Rugby Foundation at the recent Coventry Rugby game against The Jersey Reds on the 19th of March 2022. They were joined by some of the Coventry Stampede Wheelchair Rugby team and head coach Mandip Sehmi to celebrate the launch of the junior wheelchair rugby programme at Sherbourne Fields school and officially present the 4 new youth chairs, funded by Wooden Spoon Warwickshire, before kick-off.
Wooden Spoon Warwickshire has supported the Coventry Stampede Wheelchair Rugby Club over a number of years with wheelchair rugby chairs for the team and you can read more about it here – https://woodenspoon.org.uk/2022/01/14/ability-not-disability/
Mandip Sehmi – Head Coach Coventry Stampede WRC: ‘We are so grateful for the new chairs Wooden Spoon have provided for our junior team which is forming at Sherbourne Fields School. Our coaches deliver some amazing sessions at the school and wheelchair rugby will also now feature. Our foundation relies on our supporters, grants, donations and sponsors to help us provide opportunities for the community to access the sport of Rugby in different ways. I am delighted that wheelchair rugby in Coventry has been supported by Wooden Spoon both at adult and now junior level. It is a sport that can allow people with disabilities to stay fit and healthy and make friends along the way.’
