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.

As UCan2 gets behind the Changing Places campaign, an international mobility study has found that almost half of UK wheelchair users have been unable to find an accessible toilet when they needed one.

The poll by ComRes on behalf of the Toyota Mobility Foundation also found that nine out of ten wheelchair users in the UK say that they experience pain as a result of their mobility device, while 23% say they have been declined entry to public transport because of their mobility device.

And more than a quarter reported feeling frustrated because the design of their mobility device felt outdated.
