Over this weekend, Sport Rehabilitation staff member Adam Naylor joined five others from Parkin Fabrics www.parkinfabrics.co.uk based in Oldham in a battle against the elements in canoeing the Great Glen Trail across Scotland from Fort William in the west to Inverness in the East. This was all in aid of the Calvert Trust, a charity in the Lake District who set up outdoor activities for disabled adults and children....for whom we raided over £2000, so all for a good cause! Feel free to donate to the cause at http://www.justgiving.com/parkinfabrics2013 Paddling the Caledonian canal, crossing Loch Lochy and battling the 6 foot swells on Loch Ness, we completed the 60 mile trip in 2 days and 2 hours, carrying all our food and camping equipment. All good fun! Well done to all!
- Bolton Sports Staff
- University of Bolton, Lancashire, United Kingdom
- We are lecturers and practicing professionals in Sports Science and Rehabilitation. Our undergraduate BSc/BA (Hons) Sports programmes are dynamic vocational degrees delivered with the physically active in mind, whether that is within the local community, the recreational or professional athlete. Our experience and expertise in professional sport and private industry allows the sports student to gain first hand and current knowledge in the field of sports medicine, exercise and training. We maintain strong links in industry, which provides our students opportunities for excellent work experience placements. Community events also allow students to voluntarily offer their skills to assist the competitor, which further strengthens the role and credibility that our sports students play within the health and exercise medicine spectrum. Our in-house Sports & Spinal Injuries Clinic and Athlete Development Centre also provide our means of actual practice and teaching where we welcome anyone wishing to have their injury managed, or fitness tested, advised and monitored to the highest standards using recent and researched methods to access our facility in Bolton One.
