Disabled People Work Hard and Get Fit!
We're delighted to announce our new £28,000 crowdfunding campaign; and you can be part of helping us win - and reach - our exercise project goals!
How It Works...and How You Can Help!
In association with digital platform Spacehive, our Disabled People Work Hard and Get Fit campaign is aiming to achieve 50 pledges (backers) by Monday 30 September 2019; all with your help!
In phase 1 of our campaign, we'll be looking for 50 backers so we can be eligibile to reach our wider funding goal of £28,000; all by 25 October 2019.
You Can Be A Hero In 5 Minutes...
- Click 'Back this project!'
- Sign up via your email address or Facebook account (if you have the latter)
- Pledge as many pennies as you feel you can (it can be as little as £2/£3)
- Complete your secure one-off payment
- Share this link with at least one friend (ideally via What’sApp as it pulls through our project page link and thumbnail photo image the best and it's obviously a great instant messaging tool - but essentially, share it however you feel most comfortable to do so as it all helps!)
...and help us reach those initial 50 pledges by 30 September and our first campaigning phase!
We Can Only Do This Together!

Kim Cousins’ Story
Meet Kim. Diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease in 2017, the condition changed how she looked at life.
