Paralympians, national sporting organisations and senior City figures gathered in the Square Mile earlier this month to celebrate the success of the 2018 Winter Paralympic Games – the most successful in ParalympicsGB’s history.
The City of London Corporation-hosted event also recognised the work of Disability Snowsport UK (DSUK), which for over 40 years has been providing adaptive snowsport opportunities for people of all ages living with disability in the UK. DSUK has also supported the development of grassroots adaptive snowsports, right through to elite competition.
The 2018 Paralympic Winter Games held in PyeongChang, South Korea, were the most successful in ParalympicsGB’s history, with a medal haul of one Gold, four Silver and two Bronze medals. Great Britain finished 13th in the medal table.
Last night’s event was attended by a host of big names from the sporting world, the charity’s patron Pippa Middleton and senior City figures, including: winter Paralympians Menna Fitzpatrick and Millie Knight, representatives from DSUK, sponsors and partners of ParalympicsGB, representatives from sporting organisations and bodies such as UK Sport, Sport England, the British Paralympic Association and the International Paralympic Committee, Government, MPs and City Corporation elected members.
