We’re very pleased to offer and opportunity to join our ongoing fundraising efforts through the Pillars to Plough walk on Sun 29th May organised by our local supporter, Ifield Chestnut House. This is a sponsored walk of 1, 5, 10 and 20 miles, so there’s something for everyone. The last mile is wheelchair or pushchair accessible so anyone can join in! All those who enter get a T shirt and a meal at the Plough pub in Ifield at the end – it’s a sociable and fun day out.
The walk can be done individually or in teams and we would like to encourage as many of you to enter, get sponsored for Springboard Project and help us raise as much money as possible.
Registration forms are available from Springboard House now, so please do consider whether you or someone you know could walk for us. We are also planning a staff team and will be walking with our dogs, so if you’re not able to do the walk yourself, you could sponsor our dogs!
Please do let us know if you would like more details, a registration form or some encouragement to walk!
We are very pleased that Wings Mobility of Crawley (http://www.wingsmobility.com) has decided to put their support behind the Springboard Project. Wings Mobility supply a wide range of mobility equipment and share our ethos of enabling disabled people to maximise what they can do and reducing barriers to doing the most they can take part in! Crawley Mayor Chris Cheshire introduced us as she recognised our links. We are grateful for the support they are offering us and look forward to a productive working relationship.

Thank you to everyone who supported our Festive Fundraising, you helped us raise well over £2000! So, if you sponsored the Arctic Dip, bought baubles, hoodies or cakes, had a go on the tombola, came to the Christmas Disco or film night, shimmied at the Zumbathon or paid more than the suggested donation – THANK YOU! We do appreciate it.
Some of you used your contacts and this has led to some generous donations, particularly from Onsite Support and Virgin Holidays – we are very grateful to them.
Su and Luke have completed their Arctic Dip! Thanks to everyone who has donated so far. If you would like to make a donation, please follow this link : https://www.justgiving.com/LPA-WOODJETTS/?utm_source=Facebook&utm_medium=fundraisingpage&utm_content=LPA-WOODJETTS&utm_campaign=pfp-shareb
