Call for memorabilia and stories about disability sport

Cartwright Hall, where the memorabilia and stories about Paralympics and disability sport will be shared

In partnership with Bradford Council, an exhibition is coming to the Cartwright Hall Art Gallery in Bradford this month which will feature memorabilia and stories surrounding the Paralympics and disability sport.

From modest beginnings in the late 1940s at Stoke Mandeville Hospital, Professor Sir Ludwig Guttmann encouraged wounded veterans to play sport as an aid to rehabilitation from spinal injury received from the battlefront. This led to local competitions, the Stoke Mandeville Games and in turn the birth of the Paralympic movement. Today, the Paralympic Games attracts national and international public support and interest.
