Paralympics Handover Event at Stoke Manderville Stadium
On the same day of the Paralympics Handover, London 2012 launched its Education Programme with schools across the Country, taking part through organizing special assemblies, visits from Paralympians and the screening of the handover ceremony. This was a major focus for a second London 2012 project which will reach out to every community in the UK through young people and specifically through educational routes.
Stoke Mandeville is the birthplace of the Paralympics Games, and this special event will include many veteran paralympians and heroes of other disability sports, not just to mark the handover, but also to celebrate 60 years since the first Stoke Mandeville Games in 1948.
