It's volunteer week! We put out some shout outs on our social media for nominations of Welsh snow sports volunteers and Beth Drinkall from amazing charity, Ski4All Wales sent us an email about volunteer, Charmian Martin, Mia to her friends.

This is what Beth had to say about this committed member of the Ski4All Wales community...


"I would lie to nominate Charmian (Mia) Martin as our Ski4All Volunteer extraordinaire! Mia joined the ski club in March 2016 and at that time had spent only a few weeks skiing whilst school.

 

Her dedication to to the club is phenomenal, she gives up every Wednesday to support our adaptive skiers. Since joining Ski4All she has gained her UKSS Level 1 Instructors qualification and will attend the DSW Adaptive training course later this month.


Mia volunteered to support one of our adaptive skiers in Verbier this last season and was an absolute asset on the slopes; she supported the BASI instructors, assisted with Sit-Ski transfers on and off lifts, helped organise hot chocolates for the less able skiers and helped with toilet transfers among many other things.


She is currently co-planning a wheelchair push up Snowdon (with one of our adaptive skiers in the chair) and has raised several hundred pounds this year via her local pub etc.


Our adaptive skiers adore her never ending store of enthusiasm and energy and as Ski4All Chair, I don’t know how we would manage without her support and commitment. Thank you Mia!"
