Since I entered the world of Social Enterprise, becoming Chief Executive of Vi-Ability in February 2018, two themes have been constant:
(i) As is well documented elsewhere - social funding is hugely reduced across the board, meaning that the competition for grant funding is at a record high and unbelievably hard to obtain;
(ii) On a more positive note - I've been consistently told by people "We love what you do, so if there's a way we can support without having to write out a large cheque, let us know"
The Vi-Ability Supporters Club is our answer!
It costs individuals less a month than the price of a coffee (you are very welcome to give more!) and provides us with a new, unrestricted income stream - the holy grail for organisations such as ours - to run more of our educational programmes, using the business of sport to get disadvantaged young people trained and into employment.
To make things more exciting, you will also be entered into the monthly Supporters Club draw to win some brilliant sports prizes, kindly donated by friends, clubs, sponsors and sports governing bodies who value the work that we do.
So please become a Supporter, share with friends and colleagues and let me know if you'd be kind enough to donate tickets or merchandise as a prize.
Join the Club and help us to transform more young lives.
Thanks for reading.
Adam. Chief Executive, Vi-Ability
