Featured Charity: Phabkids

Today, we’re proud to feature Phabkids; a charity we are extremely proud to be working with. You can help by riding or running on behalf on the charity!
Part of the Phab charity family, Phabkids is a special charity that unites children and adults, with and without disabilities, to help them make more of a life together.
Anne Joyce, Phab & Phabkids Chief Operations Manager, took a moment of her free time to tell us how the charities make such a difference.
What do Phab & Phabkids do?
“Phab supports a network of around 175 clubs in England and Wales for all ages and abilities”, explained Anne.
“Members enjoy a wide range of activities at weekly meetings which include sports (boccia is a particular favourite), crafts and cookery, wheelchair dance, discos, themed nights, competitions and quizzes.”
How does this affect the children involved?

“Many clubs organise day trips and holidays for members and join regional and national events such as the annual Heartbeat Hike, a sponsored walk which this year is being held at Wicksteed Park, Kettering.

Anne went on to explain that “Phabkids residential weeks are held at fully accessible outdoor centres with expert tuition offering an amazing range of exciting and challenging experiences for children and young people with a wide range of disabilities.”

“Each project provides a supportive environment encouraging self-confidence and independence and the youngsters gain valuable skills, friendships and a huge sense of achievement.”
How can I help?
Phab are always looking for people to assist with their fundraising. Phab Clubs particularly welcome helpful skills such as mini-bus driving and tuition in music, dance, art or even DJ’ing. Leader’s contact details for the clubs are available on the Phab website and also via the offices in Croydon.

2017 is a very special year for Phab – its Diamond Jubilee! There will be events in all regions and a national music and drama collaboration with the BRIT School in Croydon showcasing the talent of Phab’s members

They’re currently looking to recruit fundraisers for various cycle/run/tri events across the country. Wear our fantastic garments as you help raise money for a good cause.
If you would be interested in completing a running or cycling event in the name of Phabkids, click here and review the current list of events, including Ride London Surrey, the London Vitality 10K and the Royal Parks Foundation Half Marathon.
Do something wonderful this year and combine your love for running and cycling with a fundraising goal.
