We've Hit The Headlines Again (Thanks Roman Road London!)

For the second week running, our service and its members have been highlighted in local media, thanks to a fantastic feature from our editorial friends at Roman Road London! 

Editorial Assistant April Kosky and the team's Digital Director, Tabitha Stapeley, visited us twice at our gym in the past two weeks to interview our director and founder Victoria Kent and one of our members, Jeffrey Mcneshie, and, take a fun team photograph in the gym (capturing a fair few beaming smiles and creative poses - as well as our nice new uniform - in the process). 

Daring Diana Completes Awesome Charity Abseil For Our Gym

A fantastic friend of Ability Bow has generated more than £2,000 for our gym, following an awesome abseil challenge scaling Church Langley Water Tower in Essex this May.

Diana Jones took part in the daring fundraiser - which involved a 110  feet 'free-fall' down the tower known as the Goblet for its shape - on behalf of one of her friends who currently attends our gym.

Vital Volunteers: Meet Sarah and Tim

As it's just past national Volunteering Week, we chat to a couple of our vital Ability Bow volunteers Sarah and Tim and see the difference they make for our charity; as well as showing how you can get involved too! Sarah's up first, though you can also read about our volunteer Tim further down the page!
