Local kids fight to raise disability awareness


A great bunch of local kids are fighting to improve disability awareness. Image fro Equilibrium Facebook page.

Friend of the blog Chrissie Ismay has written to me to ask if I’ll mention a workshop her daughter is involved with that will be operating in Walsall next Wednesday – it’s to raise awareness of issues affecting the disabled, and takes place outside Wilkinson in Park Street between 11:30am and 3:00pm.

You can check out the event’s Facebook event page here, and the Equilibrium group running it can be found here.

Hi Bob

I wonder if you could help me?

My daughter and other teenagers from Walsall are doing the national citizen course, and part of it she is doing a campain to bring awareness of the day to day struggles that people disabilities with face.

For this they are running a free workshop which includes games etc. to be held outside the Wilkinson store in Walsall town centre, next Wednesday 3rd August 2016 from 11:30am until 3pm.

They have been pitching for funding and doing a sponcered dancerthon to raise the money to be able to fund the games they are doing.

Would you be able to put it on your blog so that people can come along if they are in town to support the teenagers.


It’s good to see local kids involved in such issues, and heightened awareness of them can only be a positive thing.  My best wishes to all involved.

Don’t forget folks, if you have an event, fair talk or whatever going on and you’d like me to share it, please feel free to drop me a line: BrownhillsBob at Googlemail dot com.

It’s all about community, after all 🙂
