“I found it amazing! The things I thought I couldn’t do, I actually could. Especially cycling for the first time in 11 years. I felt the wind on my face as we moved around the track. Golf was wonderful as was the putting. Really enjoyed the day and look forward to the next.” Participant, Have a Go Day Leicester
