Power2inspire would like your help! And even better THIS COSTS YOU NOTHING!
To remind you: Power2Inspire’s vision is of a society where everyone has the opportunity to participate in sport, regardless of body type, age, disability, religion or ethnicity, and can do so together. Check out this little video on our Facebook page. It illustrates our vision beautifully – https://www.facebook.com/Power2InspireUK/?fref=ts
Our mission is to bring mixed ability sports events and inclusion to every school and, through our Festivals of Inclusion, to the wider community. At our festivals, everyone of every ability is welcome. For example, at our first badminton festival we had a triple world champion (Rachel Choong) playing a national player in a wheelchair (the most exciting player to watch) and playing members of the public, including children, who just turned up because they like badminton. I managed to muscle in on one of Rachel’s games!
P2I’s Festivals of Inclusion have been selected for the Tesco Bags of Help programme. We need your votes to maximise our grant (this could be worth £5,000 to the charity). Please visit your local Tesco stores (Bar Hill, Histon, Milton, Fulbourn, Ely and Great Shelford are included) as often as you can and, when you make a purchase, make sure you are given a blue voting coin. You will probably need to ask for the blue coin. You do not need to purchase a carrier bag to qualify. Please vote for Power2Inspire, by putting your coin in our box headed “Festivals of Inclusive Sport”.
Please spread the word to encourage others to vote at Tesco for Power2Inspire. See more info on our Latest News page.
JOHN’S ROAD2RIO SCHOOL ASSEMBLY TALK TOUR!
John has now completed his 34 Olympic and Paralympic sports and his magnificent John’s Road2Rio Challenge is over. Between now and the end of the year John will be visiting as many schools as possible to tell the children all about his inspirational journey.
John is an accomplished after dinner speaker who normally charges a fee. However he will deliver a school assembly talk in consideration of expenses and a donation to the charity. If you know of a school who might like a visit from John please contact his PA Anne at: firstname.lastname@example.org

POWER2INSPIRE ANOUNCE THE 2017 CHALLENGE!
I’m Don Hutchinson and I’ve enjoyed the sport of triathlon for over 30 years. The highlight of my triathlon career will be competing in the Ironman World Championships (3.8km sea swim, 180 km bike ride and 42km marathon run) in Kona, Hawaii in October 2017, when I will be 72 years old. I hope to inspire others, young and old, able-bodied or disabled to enjoy and benefit from sport. During the next 12 months I have chosen to raise funds for John’s charity, Power2inspire.
Following on from the success of John’s Road2Rio, I am calling my challenge Don’s Highway2Hawaii.
Follow my journey in the press, via new media and here on the Power2inspire website.

What Our Friends Think
Cambridge needs a place where everyone, regardless of ability, is included.
As a disabled sportsperson myself, I can see that the vision for the PowerHouse is just what is needed.
Power2Inspire looks an excellent and creative
opportunity for making sure disabled young people are fully included and feel fully included
