Raise for a Rugby Wheelchair

Hi Everyone,

My Names Umit and I am a paraplegic in both lower limbs due to a Rugby Accident in November 2018..The accident took place while in a Rugby Scrum,      leading me to Damage my T12 and L1. 

Since my accident I did not want to leave a sport that I loved and enjoyed, so I joined the local wheelchair rugby team which really developed me and and help me meet friends and great people in a similar sort of situation. 

Since time has gone on and I have been attending Wheelchair Rugby for around a year now there are not enough chairs at the club to support all players while training or playing at the GBWR 5’s championship tournaments. 

Most players on the team are currently raising for there own rugby chair that is also suitable for them, however being also a big rugby lad I would love any donation made big or small to help motivate and progress in the sport further. 

Thank you,
