The Disabled Surfers Association is having their last gathering for the season at Clarkes Beach from 9am on Saturday March 16.

‘We are calling out to our many volunteers to help run our day smoothly. This is the day to give back to the disabled community who need a helping hand to enjoy what the rest of us take for granted. A day at the beach and a safe water experience,’ DSA media officer Diana Willis said.

‘We will be meeting at Clarkes Beach Carpark to set up for the day. Sign on at 9am for volunteers and 10am for participants. Rash vests, sun lotion, water, fruit and lunch all supplied.

‘Our surfing morning is always followed with a social lunch and presentation for the surfers,’ she said. There is no charge.

For more information call Steve on 0417 812 414.
