We wanted to say a HUGE thank you to all of you for your help and encouragement during 2016. It was a year where we supported our first major event outside of the UK and what we achieved was beyond anything we could have hoped for. During the Rio Paralympic Games we were based in the athtletes village and we managed to give out over 2,500 items of kit supporting athtletes and teams from over 50 developing nations who were taking part at the Games. We were only able to do this because of the donations we received, enabling us to buy kit in the UK to take out with us and to also purchase additional kit on the ground.
All our running costs are covered by our Founder, this enables us to ensure that 100% of all donations go directly to supporting those that need our help. To see first hand the impact the basic kit we give out has is both humbling and inspiring. We strongly believe that access to basic kit should never be a barrier to those competing and with your support we will continue to do all we can to level the playing field in Para sport.
Thank you so much for being a part of our journey.
