Dyscover are thrilled to be working alongside Mole Valley District Council in opening-up accessible sporting opportunities in the Borough. This week 2 of our groups have enjoyed taster sessions in two quite different sports.
Pachesham Golf Centre and PGA Professional Karl Spurrier hosted our Wednesday group in a golf skills masterclass. Our Members spent the morning trying out the driving range and later honing their skills on the putting green.
Bookham Rifle Club provided a thrilling morning of air-rifle shooting at their newly refurbished range with our Monday group Members. The morning was an exhilarating and empowering experience for our members, all of whom suffer from limited speech and movement due to their aphasia.
As a result of this ongoing partnership, Mole Valley District Council are supporting Dyscover by funding further sessions tailored to stroke survivors. We will be launching two 10 week courses for both golf and shooting later this autumn, with plans to repeat the courses in Spring 2017.
