A Nantwich charity which uses sport to enrich the lives of children with physical or learning disabilities, is now able to offer better than ever gymnastics lessons, thanks to support from local housebuilder, David Wilson Homes (DWH) North West.

The Wingate Special Children’s Trust, successfully applied for funds through DWH North West’s charitable and community scheme, Our Space, Your Place. These funds have been used to provide crash mats, which are essential for comfort and safety, for the charity’s gymnastics lessons.

These lessons form a key part of the charity’s offering, such activities are especially helpful for disabled children as they encourage social skills and discipline, along with spatial and kinaesthetic awareness. The new mats make the lessons, which are led by experienced coaches, safe and inclusive for all of the centre’s users.

Andrew Taylor, Our Space, Your Place Project Coordinator and Planning Director at DWH North West, comments: “At David Wilson Homes, we are dedicated to building strong relationships with communities in areas surrounding our developments. The Wingate Special Children’s Trust is a fantastic charity which offers a unique service to disabled children in and around Cheshire. We were only too happy to help out and hope that the gymnastic lessons are thoroughly enjoyed by the centre’s users.”
