We're still collecting donations

On the 16th August 2020 we'd raised £1,740 with 48 supporters in 28 days. But as every pound matters, we're continuing to collect donations from supporters.

The true impact of Corona Virus:

  • 1 in 4 people have not received any mental health support when needed during the Corona Virus!
  • An average of 75% of people say their mental health has deteriorated!
  • Suicide attempts have drastically risen since Lockdown began!
  • Obesity levels have increased as Gym’s and other activity spaces have been closed and some permanently shutting during the Covid-19 pandemic!

                 Cumbrian victims need a solution and we have it! W.O.W! 

We have been kindly funded by Sport England to build W.O.W. However, without your much needed donations we will not be able to afford the running costs.
