They need your votes for the following reason:-
To help improve disabled access to the club house.
Access to the clubhouse is very difficult for wheelchair users. At the moment, you have to go round the back, up a ramp, negotiate a couple of very tight turns, knock loudly and hope someone will open the door, then heave yourself over the step. This is a real barrier for existing users, for guests, and for expanding our base of Sailability members.
The plan is to install a wheelchair lift in the corner where Daisy lives, and a new pair of doors that can be opened by a disabled user with a key. This will make them independent of outside help. And crucially, give safe, legal access to the club.
But this costs money! Members have been extraordinarily generous over the pontoon and the crane, so they’re not asking for your money again! But they are asking for two minutes of your time.
They have a bid in for £25,000 from the One Family Foundation community awards. To win this money, they need your votes! For details of the project, and to vote, go to https://foundation.onefamily.com/projects/gravesend-sailing-club-alicia-project/
Voting closes on 30th November, so get voting now! And mention this to family and friends – the more votes, the greater their chances of getting the money for this important improvement to disabled access to the club house! Thanks.
