Town Staff Megan Buchanan and Aiden Bingley, strap Mallory Nicholson into the sled

Last summer the Civitan Club approached the Town of Perth about making a donation and were particularly interested in doing something to help disabled people.

After reviewing several options, the Civitan Club decided they would like to donate the money to purchase a Specialty Ice Sled to be used at the Perth and District Community Centre, for disabled people to skate on the ice.

The sled includes a chest strap, adjustable leg support, and a head rest.

Users can be pushed by someone skating or they can propel themselves with the pushing sticks that were also purchased. All of these options on the sled makes it versatile for many different users. It is rated for both children and adults.

The sled will be available for use during public skating by asking Town Staff to provide the sled and assist in the setup for the user.

The Town is thrilled to have this donated ice sled as it will provide an option for those may not have been able to skate before. A huge thank you goes out to the Civitan Club for providing the funding for this new addition to the Perth and District Community Centre..
