A LEADING charity which raises money for people with spinal injuries held a disability sports day to mark the Olympic handover.
Aspire National Training Centre, in Wood Lane, Stanmore, opened its doors to the youngsters of Harrow who had a go at disability sports.
The event on Thursday was to mark the Olympic flag being passed from Beijing to London in preparation for the 2012 Olympics.
Activities the youngsters took part in included power-chair football, wheel-chair basketball and swimming.
Watford Football Community Trust brought equipment to use and TV screens were placed around the site broadcasting the Paralympics handover event in Beijing.
Tasha Dyson, general manager, said: "The aim of the sports day was to get Harrow youngsters into sports, to open up many more sports to them and to get them enthusiastic about exercise.
"It was a great fun filled day for everyone.
"With Great Britain achieving almost 100 medals in the paralympics so far this year it shows that there is a whole host of talent in the UK and that young people need to become Britain's future hopefuls at the 2012 Paralympics.
