Venturers Volunteer for Disabled Surfing – Mar 12

1st Caringbah Venturers headed down to 7 Mile Beach in Gerroa to volunteer with Disabled Surfers Association caring for our disabled friends as they tried the exhilaration of riding on surf boards. It was an excellent day where we saw some of the biggest smiles we have seen for a while.  It was extremely satisfying helping make this a special day for some people who thoroughly enjoyed it.  Well done one and all. Bravo Jordan for organising this day.
