Weʼre raising £50,000 to Help fund powerchairs and storage space for a local powerchair football team - The Lancashire Spitfires

Don't have time to donate right now?


Lancashire Spitfire's Powerchair FC are a local football team. We have 11 players and have limited chairs therefore growth is difficult. Therefore people are losing out.

I am raising £50,000 for new powerchairs so that many other people can join in the fun. It is a great way to make new friends and keep fit.

The powerchair is key to be able to take part in the football as it has different speed levels to the chairs we use daily, has a bumper on the bottom so we can kick the ball and also allows us to turn quicker so we can get fully involved with the game.

Being able to join in with football is something i never thought i would be able to, so having the powerchairs for the game helps me to feel included and empowered. I want other people who have physical disabilities to be able to take part in football and anything else they wish. I and many others do not allow our disability to stop us from thriving and doing the best we can.

We also need a safe space so that our powerchairs can be safely stowed away and fully charged ready for future sessions.

We appreciate any help and want to thank you in advance.
