A service in east Leeds which supports people with physical impairments and head injuries joined the globe in marking International Day of People with Disabilities.

Osmondthorpe Hub held a celebration at Holt Park Active in north Leeds last week to honour the annual United Nations-sanctioned day which aims to promote an understanding of people with disabilities and encourage support for their dignity and rights.

The event featured tours of Holt Park Active leisure centre, a raffle, photo booth and free buffet.

It also included stalls highlighting the vital work Osmondthorpe Hub provides. The service helps adults with physical impairments or head injuries to live independently and take part in social activities in the community.

People who attend learn new skills, join support groups, socialise, be creative or just have fun.
