Amount raised £2,520
Shaun and his friend Andrew wanted to help the Lancaster Bulldogs Wheelchair Basketball Club buy more wheelchairs. Well you can't really compete at the top level of your sport, or encourage kids to take up the sport, with shoddy wheels, can you?
He created a Yimby project and managed to get support for their club's appeal to buy better equipment by raising £2,520 in just 30 days. So no more second hand chairs for them, and the club can now continue their schools disability awareness scheme, helping kids get involved in the sport too. Better wheels, better self esteem and better education. Even Magic Johnson will never have shot a better 3 pointer.
Here’s what the project supporters said:
For a group of young people who so positively overcome such major life changing traumas and go on to lead full and active lives. Go Bulldogs!
