Adams of Tralee gets CARA on the road to success
The CARA Adapted Physical Activity (APA) Centre is a national centre which coordinates, facilitates and advocates for the inclusion of people with disabilities in sport, physical activity and physical education throughout Ireland. Based at the institute of Technology Tralee, the CARA Adapted Physical Activity Centre recently received a donation of a wheelchair accessible bus from Des Adams of Adams of Tralee Renault Dealers.
This generous donation will mean that CARA will be equipped to expand its programmes further and additionally we can utilise this bus for means of transporting all adapted equipment to the relevant training and education workshops occurring throughout the country. The bus will also be available to the IT Tralee APA Programme to support its developments in providing opportunities for local disability services and people with disabilities in Kerry to participate in the quality APA programme delivered at the college. This programme has also recently expanded to other counties, where IT Tralee APA students facilitated an outdoor session for people with disabilities in Limerick in partnership with the Sports Inclusion Disability Officer.
Niamh Daffy, Manager of CARA commented; â¿¿ Des Adam has always been so supportive of the work of CARA APA Centre, earlier this year he provided three buses for a camp for children with vision impairments that we held in Killarney. To be donated a wheelchair accessible bus is a huge step forward for CARA. This donation will hugely impact the developments of CARA as we aim to facilitate people with disabilities participating in sport, physical activity and physical education throughout the country.â¿
The staff of the CARA APA Centre and IT Tralee would like to sincerely thank Des Adams and staff of Adams of Tralee for their continued support.
