‘DO SOMETHING different for disability’ is the cry from a disabled sports club as it launches a fundraising week.
SportsAble, based in Braywick Road, Maidenhead, is calling on companies, schools, pubs and all manner of social gatherings to raise money and awareness of the charity, which provides sports facilities for disabled people across Berkshire, to get involved in the week which starts today and runs to Saturday, July 13.
Ideas on how to get involved include dress-down days, sponsored events or even a good old-fashioned tin collection.
Melissa Paulden, marketing manager and boccia coach at the club, said: “Our aim is to raise money to help our current and future athletes, but our overriding aim is to not let the flame of last year’s London 2012 Paralympic Games die out.”
