    Story

    Walk The Island - Portsmouth Fundraising Community.

    On Saturday 1st July, approximately 100 fundraisers - all with connections to the city of Portsmouth, will be walking close to 13 miles around Portsea Island to raise money and awareness for two fantastic local charities.

    The two Portsmouth charities that we are raising money for in 2023 are ENABLE ABILITY and SPARK.

    ENABLE ABILITY is an established, registered charity that supports children, young people and adults with mild, moderate and severe disabilities living in Portsmouth and South East Hampshire. The money raised through the Walk The Island event will fund new sports-adapted wheelchairs for their inclusive wheelchair basketball service enabling young people aged 6+ with physical/mild-moderate learning disabilities to be active, socialise and partake in some friendly competition. It costs approx £2,000 to purchase a new specialist wheelchair and our aim to is purchase up to 10 of these and help promote new players to the sport. This can be achieved by giving further support to Enable Ability and helping them provide additional sessions during school holidays.

    SPARK COMMUNITY SPACE is a local charity working to reach those who have been left out or left behind, giving people a place to belong, be part of a community of support, to heal together and to spark back into life. They welcome anyone who feels that they have been pushed aside or overlooked by society for various reasons, this could be because of long term illness, redundancy, a lack of skills or qualifications or perhaps because of a disability. Spark have a new community Space in Fratton Way which provides friendship and informal support. They are looking to put in place a Media Room within their Community Space and we have taken the challenge to support this specific project. It’s estimated that this will cost a minimum of £5,000.
