Monday 3 December was International Day for people with a disability...we were so proud to see @jump_it_ropeskipping working with the Dominican School for Deaf Children and teaching them more about Rope Skipping. The smiles and cries of joy were so infectious as the children all took part. Well done @jump_it_ropeskipping for your amazing work.
