Boccia & Multi Sports

Hi my name is Donna and I am a member of Sport for Confidence.

Sport for Confidence is a pioneering initiative, which supports people with disabilities to participate in a variety of sporting activities.

I originally came to Sport for Confidence at Basildon Sporting Village as a participant in boccia and multi sports. I then did my boccia leadership course, which I would say is my biggest achievement in sport so far and I now volunteer as a boccia leader at the Sport for Confidence sessions once a week as well as referee the multi sports sessions.

I recently attended the Coaching Pathway Programme at Sport for Confidence where I have been gaining additional skills to help with coaching. Since then, I have also been working with a local primary school to bring boccia to the school.

Sport is important to me because it has improved my confidence massively. I am excited to be an ambassador for Active Essex because when I was a little girl growing up, I always wanted to help and support children and people like myself.
