Parveen Kaur – Batonbearer and proud member of the Albion Foundation disability sport programme

Parveen , who is 13 and from Oldbury, has spastic diplegia, a type of lifelong spastic cerebral palsy that primarily affects motor control in the leg and variable muscle tone.

Because of this she requires daily physiotherapy, assistance with walking aids and splints for mobilisation as well as regular checks up by medical specialists.

Parveen does not let this impact her in any way, shape or form when it comes to taking part in physical activity outside of the school curriculum or within her physical education lessons.

Parveen is also a keen participant at the Albion Foundation disability sport programme and is a role model to their students.

Parveen continues to show immense strength and integrity in everything she does and always puts in 100%.

Parveen says: “I am very excited and honoured to have this incredible opportunity and life-changing experience participating as a Batonbearer”

Parveen was the first person to carry the Baton in Oldbury. Find out more about our incredible day when the Queen’s Baton Relay came to Sandwell!
