Stewart Finney Scarboccia Member

Hi, my name is Stewart Finney. I play Boccia every Monday and Tuesday. I like to play Boccia with old friends and new. I enjoy Boccia because it’s a good way to meet new people and have fun.

I like to take part in Boccia competitions and when we play competitions we go to different places, we meet new people and have fun. I have played in many competitions with our team and we have won too.

A Boccia session at the Everyone Active Sports Village Every Tuesday 3-5 pm

In March following our funding from Allianz Sports Fund they sent some gifts for our members.

Scarboccia Needs You!

We are in need of Volunteers so if you know anyone who has a few hours a week to spare then please ask them to contact us via our Scarboccia Facebook Page. Here is more details about the tasks and activities you would be involved with and what the role entails. They can also join our team if they wish and help bring new ideas to the Club and help us to develop so we can keep providing Inclusive Sports and Games to our members and the Community. It would also help us facilitate sessions at our hubs and enable team members to attend Training Courses and Competitions, as we find transportation of members extremely difficult.

We would like to thank Two Ridings Community Foundation for their generous Grant of £2,500 to enable us to continue to provide safe environments for our members and the Community so they can enjoy a variety of fully inclusive sports and games and it will allow us to facilitate our office at the Street in collaboration with Coastline Sight and Hearing Support.

We have been able to secure another £2,000 from Arnold Clark Community Fund, so that we can purchase another Boccia ramp for our ramp players to use and this will also fund other equipment/items that Scarboccia need such as Boccia shirts for our new members.
