COVID-19 EVENTS SUSPENSION NOTICE

 

With the ever-declining health crisis, the Trustees and the Executive of Sportability have taken the decision to temporarily suspend our events and activity programmes as of 17th March, 2020.   Our top priority is to reduce the risk of Covid-19 transmission among our ‘members’, volunteers, staff and service provider partners. 

There is no doubt, that we are all in unchartered territory and we have to navigate a situation that is unpredictable and has potentially life-changing consequences for all of us. But, as “distancing” is the recommendation of the World Health Organisation, the Department of Health and other government bodies, we believe we should act decisively, responsibly and in the best interests of the entire Sportability family.

Sportability Fundraiser Month

Let’s make August – Sportability Fundraising Month
A Fun Fundraiser for your Charity
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Here’s a thought: Why don’t we make August a Fundraising Month?

One of our Area Organisers, Jane Mackenzie holds an annual coffee morning – nothing fancy cakes and coffee – and raises an amazing amount for the cause we all believe in – Sportability!

So, if […]

Area Organisers Needed

 

With a Little Help from our Friends….    Area Organisers Needed

……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

We’re proud to advise that Sportability now operates in 13 regions of the UK, and we are looking to expand!

The growth of the Charity had been driven by a network of key volunteer supporters – our Area Organisers. If you’ve ever been to a Sportability event chances are you’ll be there because of them.

These are our local ‘heroes’ based out in the regions, who source Service Providers, organise the events, act as our Ambassadors, provide information, stimulation and inspiration to people in their region. They are the face, the […]
