We had a visit from a great organisation last week – This Girl’s Ability.
They’re a non-profit organisation that works to provide sports and creative opportunities to girls and young women with disabilities.
Georgie Hart, Nikki Fairbairn and Zoe Fairbairn came to the studio to join Jo Bailey on Eat My Brunch, while Jo was standing in for our regular presenter Michelle Ward.
The concept for This Girl’s Ability journey began about a year ago when Georgie, Nikki ands Zoe were working for another local charity. They realised that disabled girls were less likely to participate in sports and leisure activities.
They set up a girl’s club within the charity, which very quickly grew in numbers.
We heard about how This Girl’s Ability is a safe environment, encourages parents and has a community feel.
The group has made great strides over the last 12 months, attracting comedian Rosie Jones and Paralympic and World swimming champion Brock Whiston as patrons.
You can hear the interview again at www.phoenixfm.com and find out more about this very worthwhile venture at www.thisgirlsability.co.uk.
