Are you on a quest to get fit or lose weight? Are you arranging a trip or holiday that could use a bit of edge?
Then why not turn your activity into a fundraiser for Sportability? You could help get a paralysed person flying, shooting, sailing, quadbiking or a dozen other exciting activities that form the Sportability programme. And we cant’ do it without YOU.
If you could help perhaps organising a sponsored event, maybe a tournament at the golf club, a collection at the rugby club or a sponsored day out at the races – please bear us in mind.
Perhaps you are thinking of taking part in one of the main events like the London Marathon, or simply a local fun run, then we’d welcome the publicity and fund raising. We can provide you with sponsorship forms, T-shirts and promotional posters.
By enjoying your sport, or taking part in a challenging event, you could enable someone perhaps now lying on a hospital bed thinking their life is not worth living to turn back on to their sport.
If you would like to organise some fundraising for Sportability, please call us on 0208 959 0089.
Trekking in Nepal. Bike rides across Britain. The Pennine Way …. and more.
For some years Andrew Long wanted to take a trekking holiday in Nepal, but when he finally decided to do it, he added a twist. He made it a fundraising event and, getting friends, family and colleagues involved, raised enough funds to sponsor a whole Sportability sports programme.
Our CEO, David Heard, cycled the spine of Vietnam – from Saigon to Hanoi – to raise the seedcorn funding for our spread into the regions. Then in 2010 he again took himself for a hike along the Pennine Way and raised funds for more regional development. Now he is busy scheming a new challenge to celebrate the Charity’s 25th anniversary!
In October 2010, Steve Gilbert, Sales Director of Signwaves, one of our signature sponsors, ran the EDF Birmingham Half Marathon. He says of Sportability, “I am asking for your donations to support their inspiring work, providing sporting activities and challenging pursuits for people with paralysis.” We couldn’t do it without such efforts!
So whether on your feet, on your bike, in your wheelchair, on your handcycle, sailing, rambling, running, canoeing or trekking YOU could convert a holiday or hobby into hard cash for a good cause. And please think “Sportability”
