We would like to introduce you to some of the people who ski with us at Ski4All Wales.
Rhian, a young woman who sustained a spinal cord injury whilst playing rugby, was told she might never walk, ski or use her hands again. Having enjoyed family skiing holidays since childhood, the thought of never skiing again was devastating. Fast forward 14 months and Rhian is now a regular at Ski4All Wales and after initially training using a sit ski she is now back walking and skiing independently… and planning her first trip back on snow!
Hi my name is Jenny, I am 26 years old and when I was 17 I was involved in a road traffic accident which resulted in a traumatic brain injury. This changed my life forever.
I have been in active rehabilitation since, and for the last 2 years have been skiing at Pembrey and am a founder member of Ski4All Wales. I have also ski’d in Verbier twice and I loved every minute of it.
Being part of Ski4All Wales has helped improve my physical ability, balance, coordination and my self-belief.
My name is Christopher Varney. I would like to thank my courageous Ski Instructor Dave for taking me skiing. It allows me to smile and experience movement and great speed which I loved before I was ill and still do.
Please give to this dedicated thoughtful cause. It allows me some vision of what independence is like.
