Charity sector bank Unity Trust is to sponsor a new programme aimed at disabled school pupils.
The Sportsall Athletics programme, run by the London Sports Forum for Disabled People, gives disabled students in special schools access to sport in mainstream schools.
The forum's development officer Alan Whetherly said: "This is an excellent example of sport being inclusive of both disabled and non-disabled children. The events encourage participation and friendly competition at any level of skill."
The programme will involve up to 24 special schools across London and around 300 disabled children. Schools will compete throughout the winter and spring, and a final will be held in April 2004 to find a champion.
"We're very happy to support LSF and a programme benefiting hundreds of disabled children throughout London," said Mark Birch, development manager at Unity Trust Bank. "We value the importance of working with charities."
