Isca Wheelchair Dancers celebrates bringing communities together

The Great Big Walk is celebrating and recognising how people have come together to make their communities stronger.

Isca Wheelchair Dancers was chosen as one of the Big Lottery Funded projects for The Great Big Walk Project to visit in Exeter to celebrate the difference local community groups such as ours is making to people’s lives.

Five teams of walkers began their journey on Monday 29th May and have trekked across the UK to celebrate the great projects that bring people and communities together. The Great Big Walk is a new initiative made possible by National Lottery funding and run by Eden Communities. It has seen a dedicated group of walkers and their supporters visit a different local project every day. They are able to experience first-hand how National Lottery players are helping to create stronger communities across villages, towns and cities all over the UK.

Two of the walkers, Jane Knight and Judy Thorn, stopped in Exeter on Tuesday 13th June to meet our wheelchair dance group.

Judy and Jane share a few moments with Natasha

Jane Knight said: “They gave us the most fantastic welcome, lining up in their wheelchairs and high fiving us along the way. We joined in with their dancing which was great fun and they made us a beautiful cake. It’s clear to see that the National Lottery funding is so valuable to them, helping to get the dancers to their classes from across the county. We really appreciate what National Lottery funding is doing for us and them.”

It was so exciting welcoming The Great Big Walk. Our members really enjoyed showing the walking team their dancing and sharing stories and experiences with them.

It’s fantastic to be part of such an inspiring initiative that connects people and celebrates community. That’s what ISCA Wheelchair Dancers is all about – getting together, socialising and enjoying dance activities regardless of ability.

 

Each team of walkers are travelling to five corners of the UK, finishing on Sunday 18 June to join celebrations for The Big Lunch – the UK’s annual get together for neighbours to spend a few hours of fun and friendship. F
