Anything is possible when you have passion, desire and determination.

Throughout 2018, our Don’t Quit Do It grants programme handed out nearly £60,000 to individuals and sports clubs across the UK. Wheelchair basketball teams, gold medallists and a whole host of inclusive sport lovers have received our support after we were inspired by their stories.

We introduced our grants programme as part of our longstanding commitment to encouraging participation in disability sport. Our grants support groups and individuals who are passionate about inclusive sport and helps them with costs towards training, participating in competitions or specialist equipment.

Anya Waugh

Wheelchair racer Anya is using her grant to help fund entry fees into competitions, equipment and travel costs as she has her sights set on competing in the 2024 Paris Paralympics.

Aldershot Snowsport for the Disabled

The club was set up more than 40 years ago and currently has nearly 100 members, who have a range of disabilities and who take part in skiing and snowboarding sessions. The grant enabled club members to take on the world’s largest indoor ski slope in Holland.

Stoke Mandeville Maulers

The wheelchair rugby team based at the birthplace of the Paralympics celebrated their second birthday earlier this year with a grant which has been used to help with its running costs.

Mark Pattenden

Aspiring archer, Mark, lost his leg in an accident but has his sights set on representing Team GB at Tokyo 2020. The funds will pay for coaching and training during a year of intensive competition.

Our grants programme has closed for now but if you’d like to talk to someone about your sport or the club you play for then email turningpoint‌@irwinmitchell.com
