Attacker Ellie Dorey from Impetus partner club AFC Wimbledon will be taking part in a bungee jump to raise funds for the Dons Local Action Group later this month.
Dons Local Action Group (DLAG) is a network of over 800 volunteers helping fight poverty in the club’s local South-West London communities of Merton, Kingston-upon-Thames, and Wandsworth.
Since the lockdown due to the COVID-19 outbreak in 2020, DLAG has supported those in need struggling during the pandemic by providing food, furniture, and digital devices to those in greatest need in the local boroughs.
The group collect food donations in public spaces and supermarkets and pack them into one-week food parcels to help those in immediate food poverty.
Additionally, DLAG also collect and recycle furniture and household goods to households without the basics as well as collecting laptops for students in digital poverty through our Keep Kids Connected initiative. The laptops are erased and rebuilt before being distributed to schools to enable children to access online learning.
The charity bungee jump that Ellie will be taking part in forms the group’s major fundraising event at their Family Funday on Sunday 28th May at Old Rutlishians, Poplar Road, SW19 3JS. A whole host of entertainment is planned with all the details below:
