Disabled enter biggest team yet

Die Werkswinkel team of 29 was the largest yet entered in the 13 years that the Outeniqua Wheelchair Challenge has been held in George.

This year the international event took place on Saturday 21 February and clients of Die Werkswinkel proudly took away 29 medals.

“This is an exciting day for all of us,” said Edwin Pedro, manager of Die Werkswinkel, a project of the Knysna Association for Persons with Disabilities. “Despite the fact that we had to travel to George in the early morning darkness the team thoroughly enjoyed the outing.”
