Charitable donation supports local Boccia club.

Redcliffe Homes are delighted to have supported a local boccia club in Yate with a recent charitable donation. GEM Boccia club runs every Tuesday from 4pm – 6pm at Yate Leisure Centre and was set up, just over two years ago, by local Chipping Sodbury resident Georgina Moore.

Georgina has a severe disability and began playing boccia three years ago after searching for a sport that she could play from her wheelchair.

Inspirational Georgina said: "Having no initial funding, I designed our logo and flyers, manage all the social media, organise competitions and friendlies, transport members to events, organise fundraising opportunities, recruit volunteers and training for them. As a not-for-profit club, we really value these contributions and it makes a massive difference to people’s lives.’’
