    Story

    The Adam Cullen Skating Project has been helping people of all ages and disabilities to learn to skate safely with the support of different types of supporting apparatus and equipment set up by Tricia and Jim following the tragic loss of their son Adam in 2015.

    Adam was a kind and caring person from a very young age and a wonderful son who was loved very much. He was everybody's friend, always ready to lend a hand, a shoulder to cry on or to just have fun with is mates. His passion was roller skating and he was an excellent skater.

    Tricia and Jim wanted to do something that encompassed Adam's love for roller skating and what better way than to help share his passion with those that ordinarily would have thought skating was way out of reach. There are so many children, young people and adults who have disabilities that mean skating is not something that they are able to do but who, given the opportunity, would love to learn to skate and gain a new skill!

    Roller skating levels the field like nothing else. When everyone is skating it's like you are in another world. No one notices colours, creed, religious preference or disability and no one cares if your standing on your first set of wheels or are an skating pro! Everyone comes together and everyone just has fun!!

    The charities mission? Well that's hard to say and the answer will possibly always be vague because it depends on the type of request that is received. You may need a pair of wider fitting skates, a frame to help you stand and give you balance and support or you may be looking to adapt the tops of skates to incorporate calipers or leg braces. The sole focus of the charity will always be to enable people with a disability, any kind of disability, to take part in roller skating activities.

    Cardiff Skate School were lucky enough to receive 4 frames from the project which have been used by lots of people since we took delivery of them at the beginning of 2018,, to get on their feet and skate for the first time!!!

    Taliesin wears splints and uses a stick to walk and thanks to The Adam Cullen Skating Project was able to join in with his fellow Cub Scouts in a roller skating activity that we hosted for them. If it wasn't for the frame, he wouldn't of been able to join in and in his words he had the 'best fun EVER!'

    Sharon who founded Cardiff Skate School, is running the Cardiff Half Marathon in October to raise funds for the project so that they can help even more people have the opportunity to roller skate in whatever way that they can. Sharon is a skater ..... NOT a runner, so this is a HUGE challenge for her and we hope that you will please get behind her and raise as much money for a very worthy charity.
