West Wales Freemasons were pleased to donate a Bi-Ski Chariot worth £8500 to the Pembrey branch of Ski4All Wales. The original request came via the Peter Drewett Daylight Lodge of Progress, which also supported the appeal financially.
Ski4All Wales enables children and adults with a physical, neurological, or visual deficit to ski. They run adaptive ski sessions at the dry ski slope in Pembrey in Carmarthenshire and run adaptive alpine experiences at various locations across Europe. Glan Davies of Peter Drewett Lodge bravely tested the new chariot at a recent visit to the slopes in Pembrey, as did the Provincial Charity Steward Dirk den-Hartog.
The Ski4All Wales team consists of physiotherapists, ski instructors and volunteers, all committed to enabling people to experience the thrill of skiing. The volunteers all give their time free of charge at their weekly sessions, which are held on Wednesdays. Skiing down the artificial Slopes in Pembrey, connected to an experienced skier, gives the children and adults an experience of exhilaration, enjoyment, and laughter that they could not receive anywhere else.
