    Funded on Wednesday, 19th September 2018

    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.


    Ian was diagnosed with muscular dystrophy when he was 7 years old and he is now a full-time wheelchair user. Due to his condition he is very limited in the sports he can access. Recently he, along with his brother have begun playing Powerchair Football at a new club launched in Frome, Somerset by Nova Sports and Coaching.

    Powerchair Football is a brilliant sport that provides an opportunity for children and adults with a physical disablilty to play a team sport in a social enviornment. It is also an opportunity for both boys to play a sport together as equals. We are keen to raise money for Ian to have his own sports powerchair so he can play safely and comfortably with a chair which will aid performance so Ian can play at a competitive level.

    As the club is just starting out the number of chairs is limited, so we have decided to have 2 sponsored events to raise money. The boys will be taking part in a sponsored penalty shoot-out at the Frome Powerchair Football Launch Event on the 16th June. They will also be joined by a group of their friends from our Church to do a sponsored cycle ride on the 7th July. Please encourage the boys by donating. Your generosity will go towards a chair for Ian which will give him the freedom to enjoy the sport and it will also benefit the club!

    Thank You!

      Hi Everyone, We just wanted to let you know that Ian's football powerchair has been delivered! He is delighted with it and looking forward to using it at training. Due to your amazing generosity we have been able to add parts to it that make it more accessible for others to use to, so once again a huge THANK YOU to all who donated towards it!

      We've done it!! A HUGE thank you to all of you who have given towards a powerchair for Ian. Through JustGiving and other donations we have managed to raise enough to purchase a TDX football powerchair! He was measured up for it on Monday and when it is delivered we will post some photos of him in action on Facebook! Thank you all once again!
