Over 100 guests gathered to see YMCA East Surrey’s new Inclusive Sports Facility in Redhill declared officially open by Paralympic Champion, Tanni Grey-Thompson.
“The reality for disabled people is that it’s hard to take the first steps through the door of a sports centre,” said Baroness Grey-Thompson.
“This amazing facility will change tens of thousands of people’s lives by encouraging them to lead a more active and healthier lifestyle.”
YMCA Chief Executive Ian Burks said:
“We are delighted that our centre of excellence for disability sport, health and wellbeing will be a major move in this part of Surrey to provide accessible sport for people with disabilities and health issues in the years to come.”
