Nigel Adams MP writes:
“I had the pleasure of meeting a remarkable young lady this past week. Jemima Browning is a GCSE student at Tadcaster Grammar School with a 14 year old brother, Will, who has Down’s syndrome.
Jemima is a talented swimmer and believes that people like her brother often experience barriers to competing in sport due to their disabilities and the additional support that sometimes requires.
So, despite her young age, Jemima has set up Tadcaster Stingrays, a club for children and teenagers with physical disabilities or learning difficulties to develop their swimming skills with the end goal of them competing as a team in organised events.
If you are, or know a parent of a young person with physical or learning disability who may be interested in the swimming club and want to find out more, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Jemima is pictured alongside myself and Great Britain’s gold medal winning Invictus Games captain, David Wiseman at Tadcaster pool.”
