Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

At New Generation Verbier we are in the process of developing our Adaptive programme, to help enable everyone and anyone to participate in snow sports.

'Adaptive Skiing' is exactly what it suggests; our instructors quite literally adapt in order to make the skier comfortable and as able as their disability allows them, so that the skier can enjoy the greatest level of independence.

The money we raise will be used to purchase a Mountain Man sit ski, to allow those with a variety of physical disabilities to get active on the slopes and experience for themselves the thrill of the mountains. 

We are so grateful for any donations towards this cause and hope that you see the value in this as much as we do. Furthermore, and perhaps most importantly, if you know anyone who has any disability and believes that skiing is not for them, please convince them otherwise; skiing is for everyone and at New Generation Verbier, this is exactly what we want to achieve.

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving - they'll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they'll send your money directly to the charity. So it's the most efficient way to donate - saving time and cutting costs for the charity.
