Hundreds of disabled children will take part in a day of sporting activities at Lynnsport on Wednesday, June 8.

The day will be led by specialist coaches from Top Coaching, Lynn Community Football, West Norfolk Athletics Club, Norfolk Cricket Board, the Lawn Tennis Association and students from the College of West Anglia.
