Motion text

That this House celebrates the 21st anniversary of the East Kilbride Youth Disability Sports Club, which since its founding in 1999 has helped countless young people, families, and carers get involved in sport through providing a service for those with disabilities that would otherwise not exist; highlights the fact that, since its founding the Club has been entirely volunteer-run and has won over 20 awards from official bodies in recognition of its work to encourage volunteering and participation in disability-inclusive sport, as well as for its enduring contribution to the community in and around East Kilbride; and draws attention to its unique multi-sports model and the tireless efforts of all its volunteers, and its chair Len Richardson in particular, to encourage and widen grassroots participation in sport and recreational activities for those with special needs and disabilities.
