The people who help us make a difference

However, we can only do this through the support of individuals, organisations and funders who generously donate to help keep our charity running.

Winchester City Council awarded us funding through our Crowdfunder via their 'Winchester Town Community Fund'. The fund was created to support not-for-profit organisations within the five unparished wards of Winchester.

Our funding was awarded to start our new Gems class.

They are an arms-length body of government responsible for growing and developing grassroots sport. We were awarded funding through their 'Active Together' campaign, a crowdfunding initiative that could match fund successful Crowdfunder campaigns. This investment aimed to help community sport and physical activity organisations who are experiencing short term financial hardship or the ceasing of operations due to the ongoing coronavirus crisis.

Energise Me is a charity that champions physical activity for all in Hampshire and the Isle of Wight.

This funding enabled us to continue classes from September 2020 - February 2021.
