Scorchers Basketball Foundation: working with the team to help the local community

The Scorchers Basketball Foundation is the community arm of the Surrey Scorchers basketball franchise, with the main aim of growing inclusive basketball participation across the South East.

The Foundation runs projects for disadvantaged groups in Surrey, bringing people together and improving lives through basketball.

You can support this project and many others in the following ways:

  • Shop online through Easyfundraising.org.uk/scorchersbf – just click and then buy as normal!
  • Direct donations, sponsorship of projects or volunteering with us.
  • Vote for the Foundation’s project as part of the Aviva Community Fund.

Speak to the trustees in the Foundation t-shirts (not the ones on the court!) if you have any ideas for a project or would like to help.

Aviva Community Fund

The Scorchers Foundation regularly provides basketball sessions for young people aged 12+ with learning difficulties, supported by funding from Basketball England. We would now like to take this a step further to develop the project around the local area, with the ultimate aim of providing a pathway to The Special Olympics Great Britain and a chance to compete on the international stage!

You can support this cause by simply registering your vote through the Aviva Community Fund. It’s free and can be done in a matter of minutes.. Click here for more information about the bid and to register your vote now

Community Coaching

The Foundation currently works with a number of community organisations in particular, those with disabilities, the elderly and those with limited access to sport. They use basketball as a tool to improve health and promote the benefits associated with engaging in sport.
