Portakabin was delighted to be able to support the Manchester Revolution Wheelchair Basketball Club (WBC) in partnership with our long-term customer ISG. Our Site Accommodation team kindly donated a container for the storage of children’s basketball wheelchairs and equipment.
The Revolution WBC recently launched a new development programme for children and adults to give them the opportunity to try wheelchair basketball as a fun sporting activity.
The sessions are held weekly at Belle Vue National Basketball Performance Centre and the storage facility donated by Portakabin in partnership with ISG will make sure the Club has the necessary equipment to hand to encourage on-going participation.
Manchester Revolution has been formed this year after the Owls and Manchester Mavericks wheelchair basketball clubs merged to create a development and performance pathway for players of all abilities.
Over many years both clubs have worked hard to develop talented basketball players, many of whom have gone on to play for Great Britain including seven current GB men and women's players.
As a responsible business, we make sure we work closely with the local communities around us. Partnering with our preferred supplier ISG on this has allowed us to reach out and support a successful initiative in Manchester and hopefully make a lasting impact for those who use the Club’s facilities. We would also like to thank David Watson Transport who donated their time and service to deliver the containers to site
Dean Cavanagh, Chair, Manchester Revolution comments; “l would like to wholeheartedly thank ISG, Portakabin and David Watson Transport for their kindness in supporting Manchester Revolution with the provision of the storage container which will allow the club to support and develop new basketball players of all ages and create future generations of Paralympians.”
