    Weʼve raised £500 to help fund a new hoist for our Swimming Club

    Yateley, Hampshire
    Funded on Monday, 3rd July 2023

    Don't have time to donate right now?


    We belong to Yateley Swimming Club for Disabled. We have people come along that have visual and non-visible disabilities.
    We are having to replace the hoist next September and need to raise between £5000 - £6000.
    The Swimming Club is a lifeline for many, as many pools don't have a hoist, so they are restricted to where they can go.
    Our Club cater for young and old alike.
    I myself suffer with osteoarthritis and I have had a knee replacement and waiting for the other to be done. I am struggling with an inflamed hip, so getting in and out of the pool is a struggle. The hoist will be a god send so I can continue Swimming. There are others, amputees, members that can't manage the steps, so using the hoist is enabling them to do what they enjoy.
    A few of our members are taking part in a sponsored swim on the 14th April 2023 and will be passing this on to ask for your help.
    Even if you can only donate £1, it will be helpful.
    We all thank you in advance.
