In the second year of fundraising for Disability Snowsport UK (DSUK), a charity whose mission is to open snowsports to all, Iglu skiers and boarders have donated almost ten times the sum raised in the previous, inaugural year of the partnership.
At the time of booking, either online or via the Iglu Ski reservations team, those booking ski holidays are invited to contribute £1 per passenger for the benefit of Disability Snowsport UK.
Total sums raised this ski season to date are £3,704, versus £425 to the same date last year.
This means that 247 adults and children will be enabled to enjoy a ski session on a UK slope, bringing smiles, self-confidence and the opportunity for friendships, built on sport.
CEO of Disability Snowsport UK, Virginia Anderson, said: “Snowsport is such a great way of getting out and trying something new, having fun and challenging yourself. These opportunities for disabled children and adults can be life changing as well as a lot of fun. We’re so grateful to Iglu Ski and their customers for helping make this happen from Cairngorm to Hemel Hempstead.”
Head of Product and Commercial at Iglu Ski, Gordon Ritter said: “It’s heartwarming to see our guests consider the needs of others, and make healthy donations to the charity. Skiing can be so inclusive, and we love to see every guest on a slope, in the UK or overseas, enjoying the atmosphere, exercising and having fun. We’re looking forward to raising even more for DSUK this season and in the future.”
