ECLISSE were proud to be involved in the BBC One, Children in Need special of DIY SOS based in Caswell Bay Swansea, supporting disabled and young children and offering them the opportunity to learn how to surf!
Director and head coach of Surfability, Ben Clifford opened the charity in the summer of 2013 and set up the first adaptive and inclusive surf school. Throughout the years, Surfability has become a world leading adaptive surf school and are at the forefront of global adaptive surfing.
Across Swansea, BBC Children in Need currently funds 20 projects to a value of £1.4million.The popular renovation show, headed to Caswell Bay in Wales in September to show their support for local charity Surfability. As part of the project the team built a brand new, state of the art, surf board shaped building and renovated the current storage block they had available. The transformation was incredible and a great asset for the community to build on and the UK to take advantage of in the upcoming years.
ECLISSE were proud to donate two of our Classic Fire-rated Single Pocket Door Systems to the charity for the new specialised building. DIY SOS cleverly included two fire-rated single pocket door systems in to the new build to maximise space and to allow the building to become accessible to everyone visiting and using the facility.
ECLISSE UK send their best wishes and congratulations to the Surfability team and thank DIY SOS for letting us be involved with such a great project for a fantastic charity.
