We would really appreciate the help to get our training kit for our club.
Dear Gladiator Sports,

Cornwall Powerchair Football Club is a local registered charity, which offers the chance for local physically disabled children and adults the opportunity to play a competitive and enjoyable sport of Powerchair Football. We are the longest running and the only club in Cornwall.

We are trying to find help to get our training kit which is a shirt and jacket at £677.25 for our registered players.

Powerchair Football is a unique sport providing opportunities for people with a high level of impairment to participate in the game of football. It is the only active team participation sport for people who use electric wheelchairs. The sport is fast paced, dynamic and very enjoyable to watch. Powerchair Football is fully inclusive, people of any age, gender and disability.

As well as the physical benefits of participating in sport, it can teach people the importance of teamwork, self-discipline, and leadership. Powerchair Football also gives individuals a sense of independence that they may not necessarily have in other parts of their lives.

In 2014, Sport England published the results of an activity survey across the UK. Statistics showed an increase to 36.1% in once a week participation in Cornwall with the South West as a whole recording 36.2%, the third most active region of the country behind London (38.1%) and South East (36.9%). Cornwall Powerchair Football Club want to see an increase in the participation levels of wheelchair users, in a sporting activity, reach the same levels as those of able-bodied participants.

Cornwall Powerchair Football Club is now under new management and has been rebranded. We have changed the official name of the football team back to Cornwall Powerchair Football Club, rather than it’s previous name of Celtic Storm, in order to develop our team we encourage new members to join and participate in the sport of Powerchair Football. When the current board took over the day to day management of the club, there was 1 registered player. 6 months later we have 9 registered players and 5 on the waiting list.

Cornwall Powerchair Football Club will be entering the South West Regional League in September this year.

The powerchairs are adaptable to the level of impairment of the user, these chairs can then be modified to the users requirements.

We would respectfully ask you to consider helping us get our Training kit.
