OM&M present cheque to ‘Yes We Can’ with the help of Invictus Games medallist
On Friday, Osborne Morris & Morgan solicitors were delighted to present a £1,000 cheque to an all-inclusive sports project, with an Invictus Para Champion, and the town mayor, David Bowater.
UK Team Member, Daniel Bingley, joined OM&M staff members in a visit to the ‘Yes We Can’ Multi Sports Days, currently being held at the Scout Headquarters on Grovebury Road.
The 34-year-old former British Army Corporal, who is from Milton Keynes, competed in six fields; athletics, sailing, sitting volleyball, swimming, wheelchair basketball and wheelchair rugby at the Invictus Games 2018.
As well as receiving OM&M’s cheque on the programme’s behalf, Daniel spent time with the young participants and teaching them how to play wheelchair volleyball.
The Multi-Sports Days have been sponsored by Osborne Morris & Morgan, and form just one programme from the Rotary Club’s ‘Yes We Can’ project – designed to provide fun sporting opportunities to all.
The days are made up of four sessions of different activities run by trained facilitators from MK Dons SET.
Richard Johnson OBE, of the Rotary Club, said;
“Our Multi Sports Day was lit up on Friday 23rd August by Daniel Bingley – a multi award winning medalist from the Sydney Invictus Games. Daniel proved a true inspiration, and his coaching in the sitting volleyball session was a highlight for all our participants as well as local Mayor Councillor, Dave Bowater. We are so grateful to Osborne Morris & Morgan for supporting these special days that help to change lives”.
Paul Lockhart, Practice Manager at Osborne Morris & Morgan, said of his visit; “We had the real pleasure of visiting the Multi Sports Day to witness the youngsters having great fun, enjoying sport and trying on Daniel’s medals!
At OM&M, we believe everyone should be given an opportunity to do sport and this is why we are proud to be in partnership with the Leighton Linslade Rotary Club and MK Dons SET, to support this amazing cause.
We would like to thank the Rotary Club for their hard work and inviting us down on Friday.
The ‘Yes We Can’ project is well on it’s way to making a real difference to the lives of our young disabled community.”
