It was great to join others taking part in the Bilston Bikeathon. It was all to raise funds for Green Park School which does such fantastic work with profoundly disabled children from all over the city.
Head teacher Lorraine Downey explained to me that the money raised will go towards new equipment for the children including the latest technology to use sight to indicate needs and wants for children who cannot speak.
