The Wales based Intersensory Cycling Club is celebrating a £5,400 / €7,000 / US$7,600 grant that will enable them to acquire three Tom-Cat tricycles. These tricycles are intended for use by children with profound physical disabilities, and will enable the club to offer more services to this group. They give cyclists an opportunity to be more involved in sport, an opportunity to exercise and have a great sense of independent movement.
The money for the tricycles is a result of being selected as a grant recipient by the Gannet Foundation, which is the charitable branch of the Newsquest Media Group.
The Vale Adaptive Cycling Club is run by The Intersensory Club, and has around 95 members. Founded in March 2014, the club meets on Wednesdays and Fridays from 12:00 noon to 4:00 PM at the stadium track at Jenner Park in Barry. They request donations of around £2 an hour for participating, but people are still able to participate for free if they cannot afford to donate.
