Disability Festival Will Have No Limits.

Disability Festival Will Have No Limits.

Disabled people in South Yorkshire are hoping to hold the first festival of its kind in the UK next summer – and are looking for financial support to make their dream come true.

No Limits, scheduled to take place in Barnsley from 4-12 July 2020, is being described as a celebration of disabled people and their contribution to life as workers, family, volunteers, friends, neighbours, entrepreneurs, artists, performers, athletes, and professionals.The festival will celebrate the contribution disabled people make to life in our towns, neighbourhoods and communities, challenging people’s perceptions of disability and what disabled people can achieve.

They intend to hold exhibitions, theatre, dance, sports, circus, music, walks, games, talks, conferences and much more), at every major venue in the borough. They are already fundraising and are aiming to transverse the Trans Pennine Trail on June 7 and 8 this year. One of those taking part is Jamie Preece (pictured) a member of and volunteer for Sheffield Cycling 4 All, who says: “I have never cycled 18 miles, let alone up and down Barnsley’s hills, but a project like this festival is well worth the effort!”

Jamie has his own sponsorship page and the organisers are hoping that other people will participate, either by taking part, volunteering as a helper on the day or by sponsoring or donating.

When I moved to Sheffield nearly five years ago it was my "go to" organisation. I expect it to stay that way. All the staff and volunteers seem to pull out little gems of effort that disabled people like me couldn't do without. Professionally and personally - I love em :)

Disability Sheffield is a forward-thinking, energetic organisation doing a lot of positive work in Sheffield. I have no doubt they will continue to do so for a long time to come.

A fantastic presentation thought provoking and good questions from the floor around promoting this film/message to the general public not just professionals.
