Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

James is now 21 and has been playing Powerchair Football for over 5 years. He started playing for Middlesbrough PFC, using a second hand chair which is now so old that
the spare parts for it are obsolete.

He started Darlington Powerchair FC in 2013; he is the Team Manager and a Coach. He has played for them for 2 seasons and was top scorer in the league last year with 31 goals in 8 games.

James loves being part of a team and playing competitive sport; it is one of the very few times where he can do  something as an equal and ‘disability’ does not impact on his ability to be successful.

James is now playing in the National League Championship with Electric Eels and in order to help him play at this level, we are fundraising for a Specialist Powerchair.

This Powerchair will allow James to develop his skills and play competitively against other teams. The chair will be bespoke to James’ needs, even allowing him to play as his condition progresses. 

Any donation, no matter how small, would be fantastic and help James become a better player and fulfill his ambition of becoming the top scorer in a National League.

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving - they'll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they'll send your money directly to the charity. So it's the most efficient way to donate - saving time and cutting costs for the charity.
