Disabled children taking part in the Seconary Panathlon Challenge 2017“It’s great to be back on Merseyside and to witness the success of a Panathlon event in an area which has been vital to our growth.

Panathlon is a national charity which worked with approximately 13,000 disabled children last year and we are extremely grateful to Greenbank Sports Academy for its help in organising meaningful competitive sporting opportunities at days such as this in the North

West.”Sandfield Park’s PE Teacher Kevin Gauden added:
