We are extremely grateful to the Virginia House Trust for donating seed funding to progress our Boccia project. Boccia originated in Greece, where players threw large stones at a stone target. Originally designed for people with severe cerebral palsy it is now enjoyed by players from many sectors of the community and is practiced in over 50 countries worldwide, it ranges from recreational to a variety of competitive events and became a Paralympic sport in 1984.
