 The Lord’s Taverners Disability Cricket Championships Awards evening was held last night at the Kia Oval, celebrating the winners from a pool of over 640 disabled people across 18 London boroughs, specifically those aged 14-25 with a limiting disability.

Cosyfeet Community Award Makes Dreams Come True


A charity that makes older people’s dreams come true is the proud winner of this year’s Cosyfeet Community Award.

Regenerate-RISE, which aims to eradicate loneliness and isolation, has won £500 towards its ‘Dream Wall’ initiative to promote emotional wellbeing. Clients are encouraged to write their ‘dream’ on the ‘Dream Wall’ and sponsorship is raised to cover the costs.

“One lady wants to ride in a helicopter, a gentleman wants to have riding lessons and another client wants to go shopping and then to the cinema,” says Founder Mo Smith. “I’m thrilled we’ve won; £500 is enough to fulfill the ‘dreams’ of 20 of our clients.”

Established in 2001 to assist vulnerable individuals in impoverished areas who lack family support, Regenerate-RISE now oversees a range of initiatives to help people feel connected and valued in their communities. These include, lunches, outings, transport, an Adopt a Granny scheme and escorting to medical appointments. The charity is also fundraising for a 10-bed reablement centre to assist older people on discharge from hospital.

“Regenerate-RISE does amazing work with older people,” says Cosyfeet Managing Director Andrew Peirce. “We appreciate the real difference they make to individuals and are delighted they’re this year’s winners.”
