The Chamwell Centre is Gloucestershire’s visionary, unique and only facility of its kind in the county that aims to transform the lives and wellbeing of children, young people and adults with disability.

Chamwell’s Time to Grow Appeal has been launched today with a bid to raise 250,000 pounds by the end of the year.

The Chamwell Centre was made possible thanks to the generous support of individual donors, trusts and foundations,businesses and the local community who raised a staggering 5.1 million pounds todevelop the Centre and facilities. Our ‘state-of-art’ equipment, including one of the country’s largest hydrotherapy pools, other exciting sports, social facilities and community café are accessible to everyone.

Chamwell opened its doors in June 2021 and was officially launched in January this year. With the Centre fully open and coming alive, now is the time to grow!

Time to Grow appeal donations will enable the charity to continue to deliver its vision which is for everyone, no matter their ability, to access sport, leisure activities, specialist therapies, clubs and social opportunities, all in the spirit of friendship and equity.

The specialist nature of our facilities and services means our running costs are in excess of half a million pounds each year and yet we receive no statutory funding.

Every donation will help us reach our goal:

·      £15 monthly donation would cover the cost of one group hydrotherapy session

·      £20 monthly donation would contribute to the cost of a child and their carer enjoying a weekly swim in our pool for a month

·      £30 monthly donation would cover the cost of attending a term’s sporting activities such as race running or boccia

·      £50 monthly donation would cover the cost of one hydrotherapy session for a child with a physical disability

Dr Marie Owen, President said: “Like most charities, the Chamwell Centre has been affected by COVID-19 and more recently the rise in costs, such as utilities, hits us hard as it does everyone.  Yet, at a time when so many families are needing Chamwell’s support, our aim is not to step back, but now is the time to grow.”

Chamwell's Swim Teacher Jo ran 50km to support the charity

Do you remember those really hot summer days? Well, our amazing Swim Teacher Jo Davis, determined as she is, ran a gruelling 50km in ridiculously hot temperatures in the Forest of Dean, to raise funds for sensory equipment in the Chamwell hydrotherapy pool.

Cader Idris Mountain Race

Ras y Gader, the Cader Idris mountain race, one of the toughest fell races in Wales, and viewed by many as a classic "must do" race. The event starts and finishes in the market town of Dolgellau, at sea level, and climbs almost 3000ft to the summit of Pen y Gader itself. One of the real challenges of the race is the constantly changing terrain, switching from steep metalled roads to flat tracks behind Gwernan lake, pitched steps up the Pony Path, and picking your way among the boulder fields on the final ascent........and then you've got to do it all in reverse!

Molly's Blog

Welcome to my blog - To all you explorers!  I first found out about the Chamwell Centre Charity as I was looking for hydrotherapy facilities in the area. After more research I really admire what they offer to young children and adults with disabilities and learning difficulties.

Adventure Race South Africa

Many of you who visit the Chamwell Centre will know of (the always cheerful) Julie de Leeuw. Not only is she Chamwell’s Operations Manager, she’s also our in-house ‘pocket rocket’. When most of us are thinking of how we can spend our days away from work relaxing at home or with friends and family, Julie is planning her training schedule. You remember that day last week when it reached 2 degrees Celsius? Well, Julie had her day off and was out kayaking. “Sorry!”, she typed in her text – “my fingers are freezing, I can’t type properly I’m so cold after 40 miles of kayaking”. You see, Julie and her husband Anton are Adventure Racers.
