A WHEELCHAIR basketball demonstration and coaching session at a Penkridge school raised £500 and helped keep the Paralympic legacy alive in the village.
Penkridge Round Table donated the cash to Stoke Spitfires Wheelchair Basketball Team after they provided a session Wolgarston High School.
Alison Flowers, whose son and daughter attend the school and play for the team, said the Round Table made the donation after inviting them to come and give the training session at the school.
“The donation came completely out the blue and was a great surprise which will go a long way to help us out,” she said. “Our aim is to get wheelchair basketball on the PE curriculum in Staffordshire so over a six week period every child will have a go at a Paralympic sport.
“You don’t have to have a disability to play Wheelchair Basketball.”
The club visit schools and community groups with ten club wheelchairs so people can try the sport out and recommend fundraising activities rather than charging a fee.
