At the end of the Last Night of the Proms concert in February of this year, the Rotary Club of Towcester held a bucket collection and along with these monies kindly donated by those who came to the Proms, and some other funds from their Charity account – the Club was delighted to present Chair of DISC (Disability Inclusive Sports Club), Dean Dixon, with a cheque for £500.
DISC meets on a Sunday afternoon at Towcester Leisure Centre and provides a variety of sports including trampolining, swimming, softball, badminton, archery, volley ball (and many other activities) for disabled people of all ages along with their families.
DISC is totally reliant on donations to survive and as Treasurer Lynn McCallum says:
“The money raised will be used to cover the cost of providing coaches for
swimming and other sporting activities such as football, badminton and
trampolining at our Sunday sessions.
It is only through the support of Legacy Leisure Limited, donations and fund
raising activities such as yours that DISC is able to continue.”
