COVID-19 Appeal

Why we need your help

Dear supporters,

I write to you today with an urgent appeal to help us keep disabled people connected.

Disabled people are four times more likely to experience loneliness than non-disabled people. However, this year the pandemic will make things much worse.

We have taken the tough decision to close our 14 Community Clubs across London and postpone all events until further notice.

Without our weekly clubs, hundreds of disabled people across London feel more isolated than ever. Hundreds of disabled people have lost the only opportunity they have to meet friends, play sport and keep active.

When our coaches told members at Club Lambeth about closing, one member Taslim said, ‘We can’t close – this is the only thing I do! What am I going to do?’ It broke my heart to hear it.

Help us keep our community active and connected this January and beyond.  

Despite these challenges, we remain committed to supporting our members an their families. Since April, we are proud to have sent 320 packs of sports equipment to disabled people across London, so people can keep active with their families safely at home.

With your support, we can provide more packs and inclusive online sport sessions so disabled people have equipment and confidence to get more active in 2021.

I know everyone is going through hugely challenging times. But I am more determined than ever to make sure we are still here when disabled adults, children, parents and carers need us.

Please share our page and please donate:

No matter how big or small, you really do change lives.

Thank you everyone.
