KiteRight’s 1st birthday: Kitesports charity celebrates first year in business

KiteRight are a new charity who’ve made quite in impact in their first year.  They held their first Birthday party on the 9th of March at Bournemouth University and I was lucky enough to attend. Thankfully, this first birthday didn’t feature any  tantrums or balloon animals, (although I do quite like balloon animals) just lots inspiring kids and adults.

The always inspiring Jenny Ridley flew in from Ireland for the event and I have to say I was blown away by her attitude and her amazing strength.  We did a story on Jenny in our news section last year: Jenny Ridley.  She was one of many people who came to talk about these amazing sports and how they have made them a part of  their lives.  Our very own Richard Gowers also took the stand for a while (that was a bit boring 😉 !), and Cabrinha were there to help show kids and adults with a range of disabilities how to fly kites.  For more information, make sure you visit the Kite it Right website and show your support: http://www.kiteright.org
