My story

[p]On Thursday 17th June, Parkgate House School hosts its annual Sport Captain’s Charity Event. This year, our Sports Captain (Jacob) has chosen the wonderful charity, Disability Sports Coach.[/p][p][br][/p][p]Disability Sports Coach (DSC) empowers disabled people from the age of 5 to live healthier, happier lives through sport by running Community Clubs and working with schools to deliver inclusive PE lessons. With clubs in Wandsworth and Lambeth (plus many more!) they are doing amazing things for disabled people in our local community. [/p][p][br][/p][p]With disabled people shielding and many community activities closed, disabled people have said they are feeling lonelier than ever. For many, visiting DSC Community Clubs was the only opportunity they had to meet friends and many don’t understand why they have had to close.[/p][p][br][/p][p]Throughout lockdown DSC has continued to support disabled people by sending out sport equipment packs, creating home based activity packs and carried out over 900 minutes of phone calls to disabled people unable to access the internet.[/p][p][br][/p][p]With community clubs and activities now reopening, they need support more than ever to make sure disabled people aren't left behind and the clubs that are so important to so many disabled people have enough funding to fully reopen.[/p][p][br][/p][p]Since 2013, DSC have delivered sport to more than [b]19,000[/b] disabled people, supported over [b]300 [/b]organisations in providing sport or physical activity and trained over [b]6,000[/b] aspiring disability sports coaches. [/p][p][br][/p][p]Jacob is passionate about all things sporty and that everyone should be able to keep active, but most importantly have fun through playing sport. DSC invited Jacob to join in on a Club Wandsworth session near Clapham Junction and he had an amazing time with everyone and met some fantastic people. Thank you to everyone at Club Wandsworth for being so welcoming! [/p][p][br][/p][p]To help raise awareness and much needed funds he will be running Balloon Olympics for all Parkgate students at his charity event, with the help of Parkgate’s Head of Sport, Mr Mellor.[/p][p][br][/p][p]We hope you all have a fun day and that you will donate and support DSC to change so many lives.[/p][p][br][/p][p]Click here to find out more about what DSC do and how you could help:[/p][p][url=https://disabilitysportscoach.co.uk/about/news/jacob-fundraiser-disability-sports-coach-balloon-olympics-/]https://disabilitysportscoach.co.uk/about/news/jacob-fundraiser-disability-sports-coach-balloon-olympics-/[/url][/p][p][br][/p][p]Click here to watch a video of a DSC Community Club in action:[/p][p][url=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WPDWDKKMmNU]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WPDWDKKMmNU[/url][/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p]
