In May, Margaret Graham, Josie Parkhill and Mabel Finnamore were selected to represent Glebe Care Centre in a Boccia tournament in the Spectrum Centre, Tennent Street, Belfast.
The tournament was run by Boccia N.I. and was funded as part of the “Getting Out There” programme in Newtownabbey. The Glebe Trotters played very well despite fierce opposition from younger competitors. Although the Glebe Trotters didn’t make it to the final, they all had a great day out, after all “it’s not the winning but the taking part that counts”. The total age of the Glebe Trotters Boccia Team is 256 years!
