Do you fancy volunteering with our charity?
Access Adventures aims to improve the quality of life for people with physical disabilities through organising residential adaptive sports camps.
An adaptive kite camp with Surf Club Keros is scheduled for 16 – 23 September in Limnos, Greece. This is exciting as there are not many opportunities for disabled people to get involved in the sport.
There will be 6 disabled participants on the camp who are new to the sport, we’re hoping they return from the camp with a great sense of achievement after the challenge of learning to kitesurf and being in an inaccessible environment.
We need 2 able-bodied ‘volunteers’ to help the camp run more smoothly. As a new charity, we unfortunately have very limited funding. If you are able to cover the cost of your flight, then we can offer the camp (accommodation & full catering) for a £350 donation.
Volunteer voles will generally include carrying equipment, loading wheelchairs in & out of the van, helping people get around on the sand etc. However, if you also feel confident to assist in the water this will be possible (but personal kite experience is not essential). You won’t be busy all day and there will be the chance to get plenty of kiting in yourself! We hope that you would also benefit from the experience by furthering your knowledge on adaptive kiting.
Please get in touch if you’re interested, using the contact details below. We can then provide suggested flight details. Perhaps you could do some fundraising if covering your own costs would be difficult?

We would greatly appreciate any support you can give!
