raised of £5,000 target by 36 supporters

    Weʼve raised £871 to send David and Becky to represent GB at next years Special Needs World Winter Games in Austria in the Alpine Ski competition.

    Rossendale, United Kingdom
    Funded on Sunday, 29th May 2016

    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.


    Rossendale Special Ski Club is a club for individuals with learning difficulties and special educational needs run voluntarily by passionate and enthusiastic ski coaches. We teach individuals with a wide variety of needs and have run several successful trips to France and Switzerland so that individuals with such difficulties can have the same opportunities as those without. . Some of our skiers go onto great things and after a successful national competition in Serre Chevallier two of our skiers- David and Becky have been selected to represent Great Britain at the World Games next year which will be held in Austria:- we are all really proud! :)
    Unlike more 'mainstream' competitions the co-operate sponsorship and funding is not the same so in order to attend the athletes need to pay their way.
    What we are hoping to do is raise sufficient funds to support David and Becky in getting to the World games next year so they can represent GB and the more importantly the North West! Any additional funds will help get them some new equipment (ski's aren't cheap) and also subsidize the cost of the athletes parents attending so that they can be there to cheer them on.
    Our ski club runs every Saturday afternoon at Ski Rossendale - if you know anyone that want to join us or try skiing get in touch!

    Thanks for any support you can give!
