Jane Hutt visits Intersensory Club

07 September 2017

A Barry-based disability charity met the Vale of Glamorgan’s Assembly Member to talk about how they are making cycling more accessible.

Jane Hutt AM visited the Intersensory Club’s Adaptive Cycling Club project, which provides specialist equipment for people with disabilities.

The club is funded by People’s Health Trust, using money raised by HealthControl through The Health Lottery.

During her visit, Ms Hutt was shown around Jenner Park, along with Dr Eva Elliott, People’s Health Trust's Trustee for Wales.

They were shown where the project holds its sessions, and spoke to members about how the project had benefited them.

Ms Hutt said: “I was so pleased to be invited to visit the Adaptive Cycling Club. The project provides so many local people with an opportunity to take part in activities to improve their health and well-being as well as with the opportunity to socialise and meet new people. It is wonderful that people in Barry are able to benefit from this project”.

Cliff Hayes, who set up the charity, said: “It was a pleasure to have Jane visit us and the group really enjoyed having her there.

“We’re really grateful for the funding, it has helped a lot of people in Barry, and without it they might not have had the same opportunity.”
