Wheelchair Foundation UK

Wheelchair Foundation UK is a non-profit organization that seeks to deliver a wheelchair to every child, teen and adult who needs one, but cannot afford one bringing new independence to those deprived of mobility by war, disease, accident, natural disaster or advanced age.

The Club continues to support this program by offering anyone the opportunity to sponsor a wheelchair for $135.00.
