Made in Chelsea’s Andy Jordan has volunteeeed for a surf challenge to raise money for autism.
This weekend’s Wave Project’s Surf Challenge for Autism 2013 takes place on Fistral Beach, Newquay, this Saturday and Sunday and will see Andy offering free surf taster sessions in his wetsuit to people with Autism and other disabilities.
Twenty three year-old Andy, who has been surfing for years, explained: “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.”
Wave Project chief executive Joe Taylor said: “It is amazing that Andy Jordan has offered to come and support the competition.
“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.”
The Big Lottery Fund’s Awards for All programme will fund the event, which has entrants from all over the UK and Europe and will be judged by professional surfing judges on the UK Pro Surf Tour.
