Dorset Demons Wheelchair Basketball Club purchase new Chairs using Together Fund grant.

We are really proud to be supporting Dorset Demons Wheelchair Basketball Club, who have benefited from two rounds of funding from Sport England's #togetherfund.

This time, the money has helped to purchase new wheelchairs, allowing more participants to get involved, and they arrived this week!

One of the club's organisers has described just how much of a difference the funding has made:

"We have a player who attended our 1st taster session September last year and they have been attending every week since but using a chair that was wholly unsuitable for them. We've managed to purchase a chair more suitable to their needs. Added to this there are 2 main positions in basketball, guards and forwards. All the loan chairs that we've been using were set up for guards. So, we've now been able to purchase some forwards chairs too, which again has made a huge difference for some of our players."

We can't wait to see them all in action soon!
