With the Paralympics in full swing budding disabled athletes turned out in force to showcase their skills in charity matches.
Children with spinal injuries took part in wheelchair basketball, football and rugby at the Aspire National Training Centre, in Wood Lane, Stanmore, on Sunday.
The afternoon of sporting fun was to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Variety Club's Easy Riders Wheelchair Programme.
England and Saracens rugby player Andy Farrell and Saracens player Richard Houghton attended the event to watch the skills of children from across London.
Some of the youngsters they saw represent Great Britain in their Tournament Cup.
The Easy Riders Wheelchair Programme provides youngsters with wheelchairs and since it was launched in 1988 more than 3,200 have been given to disabled children.
Jack Pegram, 16, who attended the event, said: "The Variety Club has helped us kids at Aspire Powerchair Sports Club a huge amount by giving us sports powerchairs.
"Our team have been national champions for the last two years and three of us were selected to play for England in the World Cup in Japan in 2007."
Aspire's Tasha Dyson said: "The work which the Variety Club does is invaluable.
"We witness first hand the fantastic results of the kids who benefit from receiving the wheelchairs."
