Abraham Moss Warriors at the Heart of the Community C.I.C is a multi sports club based in Cheetham Hill and Crumpsall in North Manchester ,using sport as a tool to empower young people and their families to get involved in diversionary activities where they can thrive and reach their full potential and not just survive.
This week the club has celebrated its 20th anniversary and in this time we have helped over 1000 young people and their families to be the best they can be.
With YOUR help we can continue to do so for many more people for years years to come.
We offer a variety of activities for the whole family for members aged 5-81 years of age.
We currently have over 350 members who attend activities each week including football, basketball, cricket, badminton, boxercise,tennis as well as a variety of adventurous activities like canoeing,archery and climbing.In addition to sports sessions we also run successful Maths, English and Science projects and even got to meet astronaut Tim Peakes after winning the National competition Train Like an Astronaut in association with NASA.
Why we Need YOUR Help!
Due to the effects of Covid 19 the club has had to change how it runs for at least the next 6 months and this is why we NEED YOUR HELP!!
We have no income coming in as subscriptions are not being paid as people are not attending although we are still running certain sessions on line,also we used to bag pack regularly at Tesco Cheetham Hill raising much needed funds but that has also had to be put on hold .
What we Would like to do with the Funding
We have had to move everything digitally on line to help keep people safe but not everybody has digital access ,so we would like to help provide them with either a tablet or smart phone with internet access, we also need to buy sports equipment sets for each child to have their own set so they can practice at home on our daily online coaching sessions that we run on Zoom,they can also use this equipment when we return to some type of normality without having to share equipment with others minimizing the risk of future infections.
Also we are trying to raise funds to get some bikes to loan out to parents on low income who are struggling to get to work as they do not have a car and being advised to avoid public transport as well as Young People at High School or college who would normally rely on the tram or bus to get to school .
We are also providing food parcels for vulnerable and shielded members of the community alongside knitting,crochet wool,word searches , jigsaws and activity packs.
The club has been really successful both locally and nationally and have received an MBE, Pride of Britain Award ,National Respect Club of the Year, Manchester City Council Club of the Year as well as Manchester FA Charter Standard Club of the Year and numerous other awards for the difference the club makes on the local community .
As a thank You to the NHS and all the Key Workers , we would like to donate 10% of everything raised to Cheetham and Crumpsall Integrated Neighbourhood team to use to support local Health Projects in the area
Please Help Us to continue to achieve our goals ....Thank you .Every Penny counts and if we reach our target of £10,000 we will get it match funded by Sport England. It really will make such a difference .But we only have 30 Days to achieve our target so please Share with friends and family...
I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart for all the things you have been doing for the children and parents ,it has been amazing. It has been a very tough time with lockdown at home but the clubs support with quizzes and phone calls as well as sports sessions on line has really helped to keep us all entertained. I can't thank the club enough .You really are at the Heart of the community . (R.K )
