Do Something Different provides a range of sport, leisure and cultural sessions specifically for adults aged 16 and above with a disability. The project aims to get them more socially and physically active.

Disabled Access Day is a national campaign that started in 2015. The aim is to celebrate good access and create opportunities for people to try something new.

Councillor Carl Sherwood, cabinet member for health and well being at North Lincolnshire Council said: “The Do Something Different project provides opportunities for people with disabilities to get involved in a range of sport, leisure and cultural activities. There are lots of free activities on offer through the project to suit all abilities. Disabled Access Day is a fantastic opportunity for disabled people to take part in something new and celebrate these opportunities in North Lincolnshire.”

A free bus service will be provided from Scunthorpe Community Wellbeing Hub on Alvingham Road at 9.30am to go to Normanby Hall. The bus will then leave Normanby Hall at 12.30pm to take people to the museum. Booking is essential for a place on the bus. Call 01724 297270.
