Help our appeal to fund Outdoor Activities Club!

Part of our mission is to promote the well-being and development of disabled people of all ages in all areas of their lives; and to support their families in supporting them. Since 2008, we have been providing outdoors activities, keep fit, exercise, sporting and leisure opportunities for people with disabilities in the London Borough of Bromley, which have proved to be very successful.

Our Outdoor Activities Club members have enjoyed trips to Kew Gardens every year and really enjoyed it. Each year we need to raise funds for the trip through community fundraising. We will need £560 for the coach costs and £40 for discounted entrance fee for our group. This appeal will help us fund a coach trip to Kew Gardens for our Outdoor Activities Club this year.
Please take a look at the details in the link below and see how you can help change lives for the better! https://localgiving.org/outdoorclub
