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.
