Working together all four organisations want to inspire those people with a disability toget active and get in the pool or in the gym. Seeing Team GB win medals in Rio and access to FREE activity will inspire those with a disability to go along to their local facility (Please visit to find your closest facility) and give it a go.

Steve Hillman, Sports Inclusion Officer at the Cornwall Sports Partnership commented ‘This is a great opportunity for those people with a disability whatever age and ability to give swimming or the gym a go. They are going to be watching the very best in the Rio Paralympics including Cornwall’s very own Jonathan Fox (competing in the swimming backstroke event) and what better opportunity than to be able to go down to their closest facility and try and replicate what they see!’

Tim Webb, Head of Leisure Facilities for Tempus Leisure said “Tempus Leisure is excited to be involved in this initiative. It gives us a great opportunity to demonstrate how passionate we about offering activities that are truly inclusive. I’m sure that everyone has been inspired by GB’s medal success in Rio and will want to continue to be active in our centres with our great value Breeze membership offers.”
