A Suffolk care centre was turned in a wheelchair rugby court for a special visit.
The Woodbridge Wheeled Warriors wheelchair rugby team joined residents at Baylham Care Centre to introduce them to the popular sport.
The club hoped to raise awareness and give back to the community, and was able to give those at the centre a taste of the sport by getting them to join in with a specially designed course.
They then showed off their own skills with a small game, which was watched by residents, staff and visitors.
Miranda McIntosh, a resident at the home, said: “They gave a fantastic display of the skills and techniques required to play this difficult sport and the coach enriched the occasion with a running commentary of the game.

She added;“By the time they left the warriors had certainly gained some elderly admirers and we all hope to see them in action at a home game in the future.”
