Wheelchair Relay comes to Stanmore

Wheelchair Relay comes to Stanmore The Wheelchair Relay that started in Manchester at the Great Britain and Ireland Rotary Conference, under the supervision of Ade Adepitan visited Stanmore on 21 April 2017 on its way to the Stoke Mandeville Games. The wheelchair has visited all the Spinal Units in Great Britain and Ireland in partnership with WheelPower, who were present in strength at Stanmore. District Governor Helen took to the wheelchair for the final 200 yards, and commented that being in the chair gave her a different outlook on the event and on the world.
