Portland College Visit 2012

It's been too long since we payed a visit to Portland College, we all really enjoy coming along to play wheel chair basket ball and wheel chair rugby.

This time we took the young volunteer team, as most of them hadn't been before. This way hopefully in the near future we can return and the new young volunteer group can take the young people and promote how much of a great experience it is.

This was also used as a very good team building exercise. Everyone loved it and took a lot away from this visit, Thank You Rotary club and Portland College
