One In Five for Sunday 18 July 2010
In this edition of One in Five we wind up our tales from the trail. It's day six, which means it's time for a few reflections on the experience. Then we'll find out whether disabled people have anything to fear from the high powered Welfare Working Group. But first, The Press headline that says it all - 'Wheels Not Welcome in the SBS Marathon.' That's a reference to the ban on anyone using wheelchairs or hand-cycles in this year's fun run held in the garden city over Queens Birthday weekend. It's a ban that's baffled ParaFed Canterbury operations manager, Ken Sowden.
Are we there yet?
The final push to Clyde - yours truly and Trish Harris head up the finishing bunch, with Adrienne Jansen and the tandem pair of Penny and Eddie Gray in tow.
