Celebrate National Paralympic Day this weekend

Celebrate the Paralympic movement and come together to relive the magic of London 2012 on National Paralympic Day on July 26th, with celebrations starting on July 25th.

This will be the third National Paralympic day since the British public came together to make the home Games of 2012 the most successful in history.

Judo Paralympic medallist Ben Quilter, alongside fellow medallists Sophie Wells and Will Bayley, have called on the British public to show their support for the Paralympics by joining celebrations for National Paralympic Day in Nottingham, Brighton and Plymouth on Saturday July 25.

At Jubilee Square in Brighton, London 2012 Paralympic medallists Ben Quilter and Will Bayley will be on hand to meet and greet fans, while Q&A sessions will give people the chance to ask questions and pick up sporting tips from the top.

Quilter, a London 2012 bronze medallist in Judo who was born and raised in Brighton, was delighted to see National Paralympic Day heading to his hometown.

He said: “I’m really looking forward to National Paralympic Day in Brighton, it’s going to be a really fun day and there will be plenty of opportunities for people to come along to try out disability sport and find out more about the Paralympics.

“It means so much to me that this is all happening in my home town, and I hope lots of people take a little bit of time out of their day to come along and join us.”
