SIXTY students with special needs from four schools joined the Mayor of Tonbridge & Malling Pam Bates and a host of volunteers from Fidelity International to take part in this year’s Discovery Day at the Angel Centre.
Organised by Tonbridge & Malling Borough Council in conjunction with their Leisure Trust tmactive, the children had the chance to try out a wide range of sporting activities including basketball, trampolining, judo, non-contact boxing, athletics, yoga and Boxfit – many of which were delivered by local clubs and coaches – as well as arts and crafts.
The event was sponsored by Fidelity, the Hildenborough-based investment management services company, and members of staff were on hand to help run the day.
Tonbridge Lions Club also supported the event and their President Tom Simmons joined the Mayor to welcome the children.
Cllr Bates said: “It was wonderful to see the children having such a great time at this year’s Discovery Day.
“I would like to thank everyone who helped to make the event such a success.”
She added: “There was such a great variety of activities and I was impressed at how much energy the children put into learning and mastering new skills.”
