At Box-it we pride ourselves on providing a ‘local service with national reach’. Each Box-it Regional Office is committed to supporting their local communities in as many ways as possible, this includes the support of local charities and groups.
Box-it Head Office in Winchester are pleased to announce that staff and management have nominated Wetwheels Foundation our Local Charity of the Year for 2018. We will be supporting Wetwheels through a number of exciting fundraising activities organised by Box-it Staff and Management.
“Wetwheels is a charity that takes disabled people to sea on our custom-built, fully accessible powerboats. We take people with any disability and any age, including those with profound and complex disabilities. But what makes us unique is everyone, no matter how severe their disability, gets to drive the boat, we even have chin operated steering for people who can only move their head. We have 5 boats with two based locally at Portsmouth and Southampton. Each year, we take more than 2,000 people, more than 80% of whom have never been on the water before. Perhaps most importantly, it is a fun, exhilarating confidence-building activity that they can share with their friends and family.”
