Another first for Breaking the Barrier, with support from the Daytrippers Foundation and the Morrisons Foundation,  Lifeworks is enabling learning disabled young volunteers to learn the skills they need to help deliver monthly inclusive family cycle sessions at the Torbay Velopark and out of season inclusive surf sessions with Discovery Surf School.

These events only happen because of the incredible voluntary support they attract  – 92% of the event workforce at Saunton are volunteering on the day  – THANK YOU to The Saunton Hotdoggers and the Lifeworks Volunteers who are helping make this happen. The event is also being supported by local businesses: Saunton Beach Café, Saunton Beach Villas and Surf-Saunton.
