raised of £2,500 target by 54 supporters

    Weʼve raised £1,175 to buy vital equipment for Wakefield Whirlwinds wheelchair basketball -providing young people in and around Wakefield with disability sport.

    Funded on Sunday, 16th July 2017

    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.



    Wakefield Whirlwinds and Able2 club provide wheelchair basketball and wheelchair sports for young people in and around Wakefield. Finding sporting opportunities for able bodied children isn't too difficult -but opportunities for young people with disabilities are harder to find. Able2 and Wakefield Whirlwinds provide wheelchair basketball and sporting activities to lots of young people, It's a family club where siblings are encouraged to join in too. The young people love it. We are growing in numbers which is fantastic. The more senior players play in basketball matches and Whirlwinds have had a great season. The hard work is done by volunteers. Equipment costs money to buy and maintain. Specialist sports equipment - like all disability equipment- is expensive - and we need to have chairs for people to use. Currently we need new chairs for players and also some smaller chairs for the next generation to use. Please help us to raise vital funds to keep our club going and continue to provide this confidence building sporting opportunity to disabled people. On July 8th 2017, members of our club are taking part in the Rotary Club's Dragon boat race at Pugneys water park Wakefield. Please support us by donating to this great cause and sponsoring our team.
