We were delighted to award £14,302 to Victoria Park Athletics Club in Glasgow. 

Our donation helped the club buy specialist ‘Frame Running’ trikes for people with physical disabilities.  Frame Running is a very successful technique of improving general fitness, strength, and physical and mental well-being for people with cerebral palsy as a recreational exercise.

The specialist trikes, see athletes prop themselves up with their feet and use a three-wheeled frame with a saddle and body plate to support their bodies whilst steering with their hands or arms as notably, it has no pedals.

Gordon Innes, Club Manager said: “Thanks to the generosity of the Morrisons Foundation, many young people with cerebral palsy will be able to enjoy the training and competition around the sport of Frame Running’."

The Club’s President, Graeme Smith added, ”This is a really positive development for Frame Running, it wouldn’t have been possible without the support of the Morrisons Foundation”.
