To celebrate our expansion to the North West we invited 30 young people from local youth projects to join us on the Chill Factore slopes for a ski and snowboard lesson. They were taught by our apprentices who joined us from London, Snow Camp Patron Chemmy Alcott and Snow Camp Ambassador Emily Sarsfield, Team GB 2018 Winter Olympics star. What an incredible first experience of snowsports for the North West young people!
We also ran a Q&A session with Chemmy, Emily and our four apprentices.
AJ Bell’s Marketing Director, Billy Mackay, said: “It was truly inspiring to see Snow Camp in action and to hear from the apprentices who have embraced the opportunities that Snow Camp provides. The charity has used the fun and team participation aspects involved when learning snow sports to completely transform their lives and open doors that they didn’t believe existed. The programme will be a great asset to youth groups in the North West, and we are delighted to help Snow Camp extend their reach in this area.”
Dan Charlish, founder of Snow Camp said: “This has been such a positive day for the charity. It’s fantastic to see our courses up and running in the North West and so encouraging to see local youth groups and young people excited to be involved from the outset. We couldn’t have got to this point without the huge support of AJ Bell and everyone at the Chill Factore; we are so grateful for their belief in our work and commitment to work alongside us to support young people in the North West.”
Morwenna Angove, Chief Executive of Chill Factore said: “We are delighted to be supporting Snow Camp in the North West. Learning how to ski of snowboard is a potentially life-changing experience for many people so we are extremely proud to be able to support the programme and to see the development of the young people who participate.”
Big thank you to AJ Bell and Chill Factore for the support.
