We are pleased to announce August's donation is going to the Ipswich Basketball Foundation
The Ipswich Basketball Foundation thrives to support children and young people who may not have been able to follow their dreams due to limited resources and financial constraints. Their vision is to create an abundance of opportunities for children and young people to engage and participate in basketball in their local area.
We have all seen a huge change in economic resources over recent years. Having a foundation like this opens many doors for children who may have not had opportunities to do so had it not been for their support. One of the trustees, Mark Willis, realised first hand with his own daughter, just how much positive involvement, friendships and teamwork in sport can make a difference to someone's life. This inspired them to launch the foundation.
Mark has written to us to say thank you to the 500 Club for the award and said our 'donation will go direct to families in order to ensure their children will continue to have access to this wonderful sport.'
