Boris Johnson meets with Hackney Warriors
Boccia team invited to Paralympics celebration in Trafalgar Square.
THE Mayor of London met with a group of fearless warriors and lived to tell the tale.
Hackney Warriors, a boccia team playing out of the borough, met with Boris Johnson to celebrate the two year anniversary to the beginning of the Paralympic Games in 2012.
Boccia is a game similar to boule but for people with severe disabilities affecting motor skills.
The Warriors were one of a number of teams from across the capital to be invited to Trafalgar Square to mark the anniversary with a game just behind Nelson’s Column on Tuesday August 24.
