Featured Club - Ski4All Wales

July 3, 2018

Each month we feature one of our fantastic clubs and take a look at what they have planned for the year ahead and this month we are catching up with Ski4All Wales. With the Big Cwtch Festival around the corner, we look at how this amazing fundraising opportunity has benefited the club and all those that are a part of it.


We spoke to Bethan Drinkall about the club and the festival:

"Ski4All Wales is a therapy centred club as three of our organisers are physiotherapists and we work closely alongside Carmarthenshire County Council as they provide the overall ski instruction which we bolster with volunteers. In return we raise funds to purchase specialist adaptive ski equipment, specific kit and vital adaptive ski training. Sessions run weekly from 10am to 5pm and we regularly assist up to 20 skiers on a Wednesday. We are able to offer specialist support to skiers with all levels of ability.

The Big Cwtch festival was created in 2014 to raise funds and awareness for Ski4All Wales Adaptive Ski Club and is now recognised as one of Wales leading growth festivals packed full of great music, food and loads of fun and outdoor festival adventures for all ages.

Since its launch The Big Cwtch (Big hug in Welsh) has raised considerable funds, and possibly more importantly wide reaching awareness for the club enabling them to grow their membership through the purchase of crucial equipment, staff training and engaging support and funds from the local community, businesses, associations and the county council.

The Big Cwtch 2018 will be held on 31st August – 1st September 2018 and celebrates the festivals 5th Anniversary boasting the biggest line up to date. Featuring only Welsh bands and artists, The Big Cwtch promotes the incredible wealth of talent in Wales currently taking over the UK music scene, with a stellar line up of over 30 leading, breakthrough and emerging artists from across Wales.

Sitting alongside this incredible music line-up, The Big Cwtch is a foodie’s mecca with a beautifully curated selection of award winning Welsh Street Food, spectacular lakeside feasts, and multiple pop up bars including their very own local pub the “Wonky Table”, and most aptly given the headline charity, a dedicated Apres Ski Bar…. yes a real wooden chalet with ski shots, steiner’s, lederhosen, late night revelry and even hot tubs!

All this forms the heart of a jam packed programme of festival fun and creative and outdoor activities.

Artisan traders, roaming performers, fire dancers and fantastical festival adventures across the site.. Plus a dedicated festival glamping orchard including a wide selection of bell tents and yurts to suit all budgets and beautiful family friendly camping fields makes The Big Cwtch Family festival one weekend not to be missed!"
