Berwick Rotary Club had one of its most successful Spirit of Sport days for people with disabilities on Sunday.

There were nine events - archery, boccia, carpet bowls, darts, indoor bowls, new-age kurling, skittles, swimming and table tennis.

Nearly 80 people participated, coming from as far afield as south east Northumberland and south west Scotland. Pictures is the youngest entrant, Corey Bettison (8) playing skittles with Rotary president Simon Landels.

Club president Simon Landels paid tribute to the many people and groups who had made the event possible. He began with the competitors themselves and went on to thank the carers, families, and helpers for their invaluable contributions. He thanked the civic party for attending, the Swan Centre for hosting, the Berwick Detachment of the Northumberland Fusiliers Army Cadet Force for helping, the Berwick Archers and Berwick Swimming Club for their expertise and others for supervising games and helping participants. He also complimented Bryon Longbone on his his organisation of the day.
