Keith lends his support to the British Polio Fellowship National Indoor Games

Posted on March 25th, 2013 in Local News

Keith recently helped to launch the British Polio Fellowship National Indoor Games, which took place in Leicester on the 22-24 March.  The annual National Indoor Games took place at the Leicester Marriott Hotel, Enderby.

Keith said: “Thankfully, new incidences of Polio are a thing of the past in the UK, but Leicester families with historical links to India and Pakistan in particular will know all too well that Polio still leaves a terrible blight on those nations. I applaud the efforts of The British Polio Fellowship in supporting the 120,000 people in the UK with PPS, and wish all the competitors well for a great Games this weekend. I am especially pleased to see that The British Polio Fellowship is  looking to engage with Leicester’s Asian community and share their experiences of how Polio affects their extended families. It’s an innovative approach and one which I’m sure will strike a chord with local families in Leicester who have experience of Polio from communities on the sub-continent.”
