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 charity.

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


Lucy started playing Wheelchair Tennis in 2002 following a motorbike accident which left her paralysed from the chest down. She has since gone on to represent Great Britain at three successive Paralympics; Beijing 2008, London 2012 and Rio 2016. You can read more on Lucy here.

Lucy is a personal friend of mine, a Paralympian medallist and lives right here in Fleet, Hampshire. Lucy is presently the UK number 1 wheelchair tennis champion, world number 5 in singles and number 3 in doubles. Lucy recently came runner-up at Wimbledon this year and is in need of a new competitive wheelchair which she travels and competes with as she represents us during competition. A competitive wheelchair is a made to measure chair and designed specifically for wheelchair athletes which differs significantly from day-to-day chairs.

Let's show Lucy support and how much we appreciate her inspiration as she represents us!

    Let the games begin! A member of IT will be making rounds collecting mufti money, selling raffle tickets for the prize draws (to happen at 1530/1600) and Baby Face quizzes (all £1 each). There is also a CHL Knockout Wii Tennis competition, sponsored by Tracey Gilbert® (£1 entry). IT will be placing names on a signup sheet in the staff room and will let individuals know when their match begins.
