Have your say

A powerboating charity for disabled people launched a fundraising campaign to buy a new boat.

Wetwheels Hamble was set up by disabled yachtsman Geoff Holt MBE.

The campaign has already raised nearly £70,000 in cash and products towards its £155,000 target required to buy the new boat.

Schoolchildren from Hamble Community Sports College, some of whom have various disabilities, including a wheelchair user, were able to participate as part of a Hampshire policing initiative to support and encourage disabled and disadvantaged groups in the community.

Mr Holt said: ‘We need your help to make this dream a reality. We would encourage all businesses, local residents and anyone with an interest in the sea who would like to help disabled and disadvantaged people to get afloat and to have a very high value, life-enriching experience, to get behind the project and to support us.’
