Path to Success Raise over £10,000 for London Titans WCB

Path to Success Raise over £10,000 for London Titans WCB

London Titans Wheelchair Basketball Club have been presented with a five figure cheque by a leading disability charity to fund their forthcoming European exploits.

Ahead of their most recent match against the Owls, the capital’s premier Wheelchair Basketball team received over £10,500 in a charitable donation from Path to Success, the leading UK disability charity.

The funds were raised at Path to Success’s charity Wheelchair Basketball tournament at the Copper Box Arena in September. Businesses made a donation to enter teams into the tournament, before competing for the title of Corporate Wheelchair Basketball Champion 2018. 

Charity wheelchair basketball tournament to fund future Team GB champions

A special sporting event has been organised to pave the way for future basketball champions. 

National charity Path to Success is staging a Wheelchair Basketball Tournament at Olympic Park to raise funds for London Titans Wheelchair Basketball Club and begin the journey to victory at Tokyo 2020. 

All proceeds from the tournament will go towards buying specially-modified sports wheelchairs, court hire, match fees, transport and coaching for the Titans, which has produced more than 50 Team GB players in its history.

The event, which hopes to inspire a new generation of Paralympians, has received the support of Baroness Tanni Grey-Thompson, who has won a total of eleven gold medals in her glittering Paralympic career.
