£1,195raised of £1,000 target by 43 supporters

    Weʼve raised £1,195 to buy new sports wheelchairs in varying sizes which will help more people with disabilities try tennis and become regular players...

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    In order to raise the £1000 required to purchase new sports wheelchairs for the programme Michael will be completing a 10K using a sports wheelchair at Craiglockhart Tennis Centre on Sunday 17th June.

    Michael will be pushing the chair round a 246 metre route on the indoor tennis courts so in order to go the distance he'll need to do it 41 times.

    Any donation is appreciated whether little or large and will go towards purchasing new sports wheelchairs in varying sizes to help more people with disabilities play tennis at the centre and around Edinburgh and the Lothians!

      Absolutely delighted to announce that we've been awarded grant funding for two general purpose sports wheelchairs from the Dan Maskell Tennis Trust! This means that we will pay £250 towards each chair (approx value of each chair is close to £1k). They've also agreed that we can re-apply for another two in the future. Buzzing is an understatement..... Many thanks again to all those who donated towards the chairs!

      Just thought I'd post a quick update on the wheelchairs... The total raised (including what's here at JustGiving and the bake sale we ran at the event) was £1241.00. I currently have open discussions with a couple of wheelchair manufacturers and some trusts with the aim of making the money go as far as possible. I will keep everyone posted and rest assured the chairs will be here as soon as possible - I'm sure we'd all agree that five chairs would be better than two! Thanks again for your support!
