Raising funds for sports disability and mobility equipment


Play Badminton Club hosted it's Winter Social event in Harrow on Friday 16 December, as a charity fundraiser in aid of the British Polio Fellowship.


The event saw around 60 members from the local community come together to enjoy an evening of celebration.


This year, Kripen Dhrona, Chief Executive and Linda Davis, Trustee attended on behalf of the British Polio Fellowship. Kripen gave a presentation about the work of the Fellowship and Linda spoke of her memories contracting polio as a child and how it has affected her life.


Kripen commented on the evening saying: "The evening was excellent and very well organised. We had a food buffet, which was delicious, and Linda and I were asked to award one of the prizes for the raffle. A host of Badminton awards were also given to club members.



"Later in the evening, everyone was encouraged to get involved in the Bollywood dancing and it certainly helped me get to know everyone.

"We are very grateful to the Play Badminton Club. It was a really enjoyable evening and I'm looking forward to developing our partnership next year."


Play Badminton Club, a Badminton England affiliated club based in the Harrow or Northwood area, offer adults living in the local community an opportunity to play badminton, regardless of their ability.


Earlier this year the Club agreed a charity partnership with the British Polio Fellowship, to raise funds for sports disability and mobility equipment.


The British Polio Fellowship has been improving the lives of those living with the effects of polio and Post-Polio Syndrome since 1939. It provides members with access to support services, grants, medical advice, and local social activities.
