Rugby wheelchair for Amanda

34889100_1551013529167394_r.jpegAmanda Crowley suffered a fall over ten years ago which left her paralysed from the chest down, we in the able bodied world cannot imagine how much of a life changing event that is, but Amanda has and always will be a fighter. One day just over a year ago she discovered
the sport of wheelchair rugby, a sport aimed at all levels of disability, sex and age. she began training with the Swansea ospreys overcoming obstacles along the way but with true determination made it to the 5 S team eventually winning the british championship last year.
The sport of Wheelchair rugby means everything to Amanda and her only wish it to own her own chair, club chairs are loaned to team members but are not designed for the individual using them, and more often than not it may be a different chair each week. I am hoping to raise enough funds to allow Amanda to have a purpose built, made to measure rugby chair, built by Roma Chairs in Bridgend Wales. Take a look https://romasport.co.uk/rugby-landing/

The sport of Wheelchair rugby is such a fantastic outlet for people with all disabilities and if you are unable to donate consider suggesting trying the sport to any disabled person in your social circle, every little helps folks.

Had great news, the Sport foundation for the disabled have donated a whopping £800, such a generous gift from a hugely positive disabled charity, so our our current balance for the appeal is now over £2000, the donation came by bank transfer so is not included in the go fund me total , We are hoping to have the chair made and ready for the super 5S season which will be starting in May #excited
