A new campaign hopes to raise £3m to build an adaptive sports centre for disabled and able-bodied people of all ages.

Little Discoverers and Little Miracles, two charities for children with disabilities, have teamed up with the King's Lynn-based Pelicans Hockey Club to raise funds for the facility at Lynnsport, in Lynn.

Little Discoverers trustee Katie Fisher said it would provide an accessible environment where people with disabilities could keep active and have fun.

Pelicans president Charles Lankfer said: "Three million sounds like scary money but there are grants out there, there are sources of support."

Thornham-based Strata Architects have drawn up the plans for the building for free.

They include adaptive spaces which can be used for different sports or therapy equipment, inclusive changing rooms and toilets, a sensory room and spaces to socialise.

Strata director Jason Law said: "I think this is going to be an amazing building, I'm pretty sure we're going to see it through."

He added before grants could be applied for to begin raising the costs of building the hub, a planning application would need to be submitted and approved, a process which would cost £8,000.

Little Miracles chief executive Michelle King said it has supported 357 families since launching a King's Lynn branch last year.

She added families with disabled children struggled to access sport in Lynn.

"It's silly things like not being able to find a toilet with a hoist," she said.

Borough councillor Alistair Beales said: "In terms of the future you've got my support and I'll try everything I can to bring the borough council along with you."
