Over the past three months I’ve had the pleasure of volonteering at the charity WheelPower, the national charity for wheelchair sport. I’ve been working alongside Joyce Sheard, who is a volunteer fundraiser, event organizer, as well as being a mum, grandmother and wife – and an international weightlifting referee in her spare time! One amazing lady. Working alongside Joyce, I’ve come to understand the sense of the commitment and passion that people who work at WheelPower have to help others less fortunate than them. Giving my time to help organize a fundraising event has been my way of giving back to the community that I live in.
Do you live in Aylesbury Vale or the surrounding villages and want to help a local charity raise much needed funds? Then come and get yourself pampered at the Ladies Indulgence Evening on Thursday 29th March whilst raising money for the charity WheelPower.
The event is from 6:30-9:30 pm at the Olympic Lodge at Stoke Mandeville Stadium (in Stoke Mandeville, near Aylesbury). There will be a variety of beauty taster treatments such as manicures, reiki, reflexology, facials, as well as stalls selling a range of accessories, gifts, home decorations, and beauty products. There will be a raffle with some fantastic prizes, including tickets for two to the 2012 Olympic Park.
If you are interested in attending, you can either contact me for tickets at email@example.com or you can buy tickets at the door. Tickets cost £7.50 and all funds raised will go directly to WheelPower.
WheelPower is the national charity for wheelchair sport and provides opportunities, facilities and equipment, which enable disabled people, of all ages, to play sport and lead healthy active lives. Sport provides tremendous benefits by improving health and physical strength, increasing self esteem and confidence leading to a better quality of life.
