Water sports for disadvantaged young people

CHICKS provides free respite breaks for children from desperately disadvantaged backgrounds. They may be experiencing poverty, abuse, domestic violence, bereavement and housing issues.  Thanks to the Whirlwind Charitable Trust, these children are able to enjoy a fantastic water sports adventure! Since this is usually the first time many of the young people have had this opportunity it has a huge impact – here are some quotes from recent water rafting activities:

 “It was a new experience – it’s 10/10!”

 “It was my best part of the week!”

  “Getting a child who was afraid of the water into a raft and then have him ask me to jump in the water with him – it was an unforgettable moment” (Break Volunteer)
