We try to ensure that our venue and events are as accessible and inclusive as possible to everyone. We seek advice on all the improvements we carry out to ensure we are always making our facilities easier to use for all. That’s why we support the wonderful work that Whizz-Kidz do. They’re working hard to transform the lives of disabled children across the UK, providing the equipment, training and support they need to become confident young adults and reach their true potential.
Since 2016 we have supported Whizz-Kidz at Temple Island Meadows during Henley Royal Regatta, where they have raised almost £15,000! We are very proud to have worked with them to generate these much needed funds, which have a truly life-changing impact for disabled children and young people. The amount raised is enough to fund two specialist powered wheelchairs for children who cannot get suitable equipment from the NHS, and three ten hour Wheelchair Skills training courses for up to 10 young people. These wheelchairs give children freedom and independence, enabling them to play, learn and develop the skills and confidence they need to build bright futures.

We would like to thank all those who have donated over the last four years and look forward to working together in 2020 to unlock young disabled people’s potential.
