A project which I have set up on my own in my community of East Herts. We encourage women across Herts to wiggle, jiggle and move more in a sociable and non judgemental way.
In short we arrange sport and activity all over the county for women of all different ages, sizes and abilities. I pay for the coaches and venues and then we charge the ladies an affordable amount so they can try different activities in the safety of a group instead of on their own!
We run Netball, clubbercise and running groups on a regular basis in affiliation with local clubs. We also have adhoc activities such as climbing, kayaking, rounders, burlesquercise, Pilates, street dance and cricket. Basically if a woman wants to try it we will arrange it!
We need the funding to pay for:
training - for ongoing sustainability to get coach costs down and deliver some sessions ourselves.
coaches - to pay for qualified coaches in specialist areas.
venues - to pay for venues where no subsidy is available.
equipment - to enable groups to run smoother and have more equipment easily available to us.
childcare - for sessions which are run in the day to allow access to mums.
marketing - to reach more ladies and build the brand.
This will enable us to offer a variety of affordable and subsidised activities to allow more women to access activities.
We appreciate you reading :)
