Swapping the radio studio for the cycle track – Capital London’s Breakfast team spent the morning with one of the charities which Global’s Make Some Noise supports, KEEN London.
KEEN London is a charity which runs sports sessions for children and young people with disabilities. Capital London’s Breakfast presenters, Roman Kemp, Vick Hope and Sonny Jay headed to the velodrome at the Olympic Park to see how money their listeners raise for Global’s Make Some Noise makes a real difference to charities like KEEN London.
At the velodrome, the children were taking part in an adapted cycling session – not only was it good exercise and lots of fun, but these activities can help them grow in confidence.
KEEN run sports sessions, just like this one, in Camden, Hackney and Lambeth which give children and young people with disabilities the chance to enjoy a wide range of physical activities. KEEN’s staff and volunteers are all so welcoming to each person who walks through the door and they work hard to make sure the activities are focused to the needs of everyone taking part.
Roman was particularly excited to visit the project as he revealed that he’d only recently learnt how to ride a bike himself. Everyone at the cycling session loved seeing him riding on one of the children’s bikes – which was definitely not his size!
By tuning in to Capital on Friday 5th October, you can join the noise and donate to Global’s Make Some Noise to support more small charities just like KEEN London.
