Donations have supported Sports Camp for disabled children

Your support helps children with disabilities improve their physical and psychological wellbeing by going to Sports Camp, a club run thanks to donations.

Think back to when you were growing up. Imagine not joining in other children’s games, simply because you felt like you weren’t able to. Imagine missing PE because taking part felt too scary, or not being able to be part of a sports team because there were none available to you.

It’s hard enough as a child, sometimes feeling like you don’t fit in. But for children with disabilities, these common experiences can make their already challenging childhood even harder.

Exercise and sports bring important benefits to children with disabilities, such as improved cardiovascular fitness, muscle strength and flexibility. Engaging with peers and improving confidence is also key to their psychological wellbeing.
