Your Champions: Wrexham Community Champion - Carol Gardner

THE manager of an organisation which supports children and young people with disabilities has been chosen as the Wrexham Chronicle’s Your Champions person of the year.

Dynamic provides out-of- school activities for about 100 children and young people with special needs. Disabilities range from physical, intellectual or sensory impairments, emotional problems and life-limiting illnesses. It organises after- school activities, weekend fun and drop-in sessions.

Manager Carol Gardner joined them in about 1996, when Dynamic, which formed as a small group in the 1980s, became a registered charity.

She was nominated by the Jones family, whose child attends Dynamic.

They said: "Carol’s role at Dynamic sees her working tirelessly to ensure the group meets the needs of young people with disabilities while volunteering where she can and running her family home.

"She is dedicated beyond the call of duty to the young people who attend Dynamic."
