Andy Jordan, one of the stars in Made In Chelsea, the TV programme, will become a volunteer surf instructor for autistic children at a charity event being held on Fistral Beach in Newquayon 6 July 2013.
Andy Jordan will be assisting Truro-based charity The Wave Project at their event: Surf Challenge for Autism. This is a free surfing initiative giving autistic people the chance to show off their surfing skills. He first saw the event posted on Twitter and took up the challenge by contacting The Wave Project and offering his services. Other stars at the event will include former English Surfing Champion Hannah Harding and UK Champion Russell Winter.
The Wave Project event runs for two days: Saturday and Sunday July 6-7 2013.
A keen surfer already, Andy said: “When I read about the Wave Project on Twitter I knew it was something I had to be involved in. I am passionate about surfing, and have seen a similar event that takes place in LA. I can’t wait to get in the water and help out, there’s nothing better than supporting great causes.”
The event is being funded by the Big Lottery Fund and will also offer free surf taster sessions for people with disabilities.
Wave Project chief executive Joe Taylor said: “It is amazing the Andy Jordan has offered to come and support the competition. The offer came out of the blue after Andy found out about the event on Twitter. We’re really delighted that he has not only agreed to come along, but will be getting on a wetsuit and helping disabled children to surf.”
