Children in Need boost for dwarf sports


The Dwarf Athletics Association's East Midlands branch is based in Derbyshire.

Children in Need funding has allowed the group to continue organising sport sessions for dwarves from across the region.

It's a serious business - many of the participants are hoping to make the Paralympics in 2016.

The club not only allows them to practice against people the same size but also has a social aspect too.

BBC East Midlands Today's Karen Winchester went along to watch a badminton session.
