Disabled beach training
by George Alleyne
Some members of Breakfast Club of Barbados (BCB) Council for the Disabled are today at Browne’s Beach in a training session focused on the use of recently acquired beach wheelchairs.
The specially equipped wheelchairs were donated by the Rotary Club of Barbados.
BCD members, along with volunteers and sign language interpreters decided to visit have some fun in the sea on this holiday weekend, while teaching some persons how to maneuver in the water with the assistance of professional lifeguards.
Today’s activity is organised by the Breakfast Club for disabled women and girls that was launched last month.
In Photo, Tracey Lorde (centre), a resident of the Thelma Vaughn Memorial Home, is attended by a lifeguard as she gets into water splashing with BCD Operations Manager, Roseanne Tudor.
This is the first time Tracey has been able to venture into the sea.
