    would recommend it to others to try it It was nice to see how GB helps others with charity events Christopher McShane also recommends the experience He said The children were great to work with and the whole day was very well organised I got a huge amount out of it personally It s the first time I ve ever been involved with anything like this and it was great to see the children learning and having fun at the same time I learned a lot too and would 100 recommend it to other colleagues who haven t been involved yet What a scorcher Paul Speakman has attended several events in the past and enjoyed this one just as much Fantastic day again but now fighting off sunstroke what a scorcher Co organiser Stu Farley summed everything up when he said It was a brilliant event and the weather was kind to us The staff got stuck in and involved with all the activities and it was obvious from the laughter and smiles on the faces of the kids how much they enjoyed it It was a fitting end to the programme we have been running jointly with the Wolves Foundation over several months to raise the awareness of disability with schoolchildren through sport Best day so far By Mike Birkett Published 24th June 2014 Posted in Charity Gladstone Brookes Wolves Foundation Tagged disabilities Disability Awareness Warrington Wolves Charitable Foundation The GB Team left to right Jordan Campbell Aaron Chadburn Kathryn Bennett Amy Atherton and Jon Quirke The GB staff taking part were unanimous the Disability Awareness Day at Green Lane Community Special School was the best day so far in our year long project with the Warrington Wolves Charitable Foundation to raise awareness of a range of disabilities and the effect they have on people s daily lives Everyone agreed that though they were there to bring a series of sporting lessons to pupils with their own disabilities they ended up being taught as much if not more by the kids themselves with the enthusiasm they brought to every event Jason Elkaleh from the Wolves Foundation said The GB Staff did a great job This is the first time we have delivered the programme in a special school and it was great to see the way they adapted to the situation and got really involved with the children Inspiring Kathryn Bennett said Today has been the best day so far Being part of the assembly was possibly the most inspiring part of the day with the children receiving their merit awards for achieving something which seems so ordinary to you and I but is a huge achievement for a child with a disability It was all capped off by the look of joy and excitement on their faces when we had the seated volleyball tournament in the afternoon It was a picture I won t forget she added Amazed Aaron Chadburn found that working with children who had their own disabilities brought an added dimension to the whole programme I was amazed at how well they did he said It gave us all a special insight into what it means to cope with a disability and still enjoy life It was a great day Amy Atherton said It was a very rewarding day It was lovely to see children of all ages learning to work as part of a team and all having fun no matter what their disability It was a fantastic event to be part of and such a positive experience For Jordan Campbell it was his first experience of a disability awareness event but it won t be his last It was a great day from start to finish and something I definitely want to do again Click on thumbnail to see a bigger image Incredible Jon Quirke has been to a series of events but this was his first time with disabled children and he describes it as an incredible day Watching the kids receive their merit awards in morning assembly was a very touching experience even for a guy It makes you realise that we have a much easier life and that we need to appreciate what we have and think about the attitude we have to other people regardless of who they are Help I was working with one young girl trying to get her to pick up two balls at the same time It seems such a small thing but to see her achieve it because of the help I gave her was an amazing feeling It taught me that regardless of who you are and whether you have a disability or not we are all the same but some people just need more help than others at times Staff at the school who work with the children every day enjoyed the event as much as their pupils Delighted The staff joined the kids for the seated volleyball tournament PE Co ordinator Mike King commented All the kids and staff really enjoyed the event We have had great links with the Wolves Foundation for a number of years and were delighted to welcome the staff from Gladstone Brookes into school to see the great work that goes on in disability sport and get involved themselves A great day was had by all and everyone enjoyed the activities the seated volleyball was a particular highlight Many thanks to everyone involved for helping to give our children positive and enjoyable experiences of sport he added Disability Awareness at Meadowside By Mike Birkett Published 13th June 2014 Posted in Charity Gladstone Brookes Wolves Foundation Tagged Disability

    away from you Only then do you understand how much you actually depend on them Grateful I often moan I m not happy with my body or I look like E T without my top on I want a sick pack or I wish my legs were bigger But having that experience Friday made me feel embarrassed and realise that I should be grateful I have all my five senses and have legs to walk and not just following what society deems as attractive If more people allowed themselves to live in a disabled person s shoes I guarantee they would not only love the body they have but love and support anyone who they see struggling in life These days people think it s easier to turn the other cheek and carrying complaining about things that are unimportant They don t realise how lucky they really are I now have a greater respect for anyone with a disability and actually see those people who haven t let a disability stop them as being stronger than you and I We can all learn a lot from them Clearer Joanne tries her hand at seated volleyball Joanne Johnson of Winwick Street reception also felt she learned a lot It was much more than I expected It gave me a much clearer understanding of the difficulties which some people have to overcome and I would not think twice about It was interesting to live in a disabled person s shoes for a couple of hours When we were set tasks to complete as a disabled person would I couldn t think of how to go about them but after the training I had a much better understanding To be honest in the past I have not given much consideration to things like this but I definitely learned from the experience and look forward to other opportunities to get involved Get involved Cheryl has already volunteered for Stage 2 Cheryl Morris Yorke implores all her colleagues to get involved and has also signed up as a volunteer She said I give money to three charities each month but today I realised that although giving money to charity is good giving a bit of your own time is better So I have been inspired to offer my services as a volunteer I hope that I am not on my own and that other people will offer some of their time as well Lip read I can do my alphabet in sign language and would like to learn how to sign properly and work more with deaf people I have been partially deaf since the age of 5 after I had measles and I learned how to lip read because I was totally deaf for 12 months Please get involved with this scheme it is both enlightening and humbling at the same time but really worth it CHARITY OF THE MONTH Children In Need By Mike Birkett Published 19th November 2013 Posted in Charity Gladstone

    the most inspirational people I ve ever met and Jess Jones added The whole class was inspired by this talk I thought it was very moving Making his point Time for selfies with the top man Younger children Getting the message of health well being and overcoming adversity across to younger children is also important like the assembly talk he gave to the pupils of St Clare s RC Primary School in Chester St Clare s assemply Holding the Olympic Torch Enthusiasm from the class Trying out the hand cycle Head teacher Marian Ryder said The children absolutely loved Adrian s visit They said it was the most inspiring talk they had ever heard One teacher had to abandon their timetable as the children just wanted to share their thoughts about what they had listened to and observed This gave the children great insight into diversity and overcoming difficulties Campaign Adrian is currently promoting his campaign every four to six weeks with a stall in Warrington s Golden Square shopping mall It s another way of furthering the outreach and getting the message across he says The importance of what I m doing was underlined the other day when two 17 year old girls approached me out of the blue and told me they were both victims of social media bullying at such a level that they have both had to leave two schools I had only been out there 15 minutes and they came along to tell me their stories Adrian will be in Golden Square every month from June through to the start of Anti Bullying Week in October Dates are June 6th July 18th August 29th September 12th and October 10th Adrian describes the Olympic torch he carried to a fascinated audience in Golden Square The future What is the future of the campaign Well it just keeps going from strength to strength says Adrian As well as going back to the Isle Of Man I am involved in a whole series of events like LBGT Pride Mela and Northwich Pedal Power I have been invited to be the keynote speaker at Warrington Mela and will be leading Warrington Pride for the third year in a row But he is concerned the very success of the campaign could bring about its downfall He says I have had great support from my sponsors like Gladstone Brookes so far but due to overwhelming and positive response for this much needed and vital campaign it s success may be its downfall I have to raise 80 000 a year to continue my outreach into schools clubs universities and after school programs and without future funding this life saving and educational campaign will come to an end Documentaries Adrian has also been busy on the filming front As well as his own film which will show his campaign through his own eyes he is currently working with documentary director Delwyn Byast on a series of 30 minute short films He says
