The Rivertime Boat Trust, together with Give Them a Sporting Chance, are delighted to announce The Rivertime Accessible Regatta will be held at the Bisham Abbey National Sports Centre on Wednesday 14th June 2017

The event has been created by the two charities to offer children with a wide range of disabilities the chance to get out on the water in a safe and controlled environment and have fun trying a new sport or activity they might not otherwise have the opportunity to do.

The regatta will offer participants opportunities to try competitive bell boating, accessible sailing, wheelchair power boating and canoeing as well as fun and games with accessible cycling, chair basketball, para tennis and frisbee golf and a picnic in the grounds of The Abbey on the banks of the Thames.

About Give Them a Sporting Chance

Give Them a Sporting Chance offers those with disabilities and carers of all ages an opportunity to turn their sporting and recreational dreams into reality. Recipients are recommended by organisations and, in return for living their dream, are asked to raise funds for another charity of their choice (but not Give Them a Sporting Chance). Over 100 organisations have benefitted from their superb efforts since the charity was founded in 1991. Give Them a Sporting Chance is run entirely by volunteers who believe that everyone can make a difference to someone else’s life and no act of human kindness is ever wasted.
