I recently visited the Seacliff Surf Life Saving Club to thank the president, Dr Glen Patten OAM, the immediate past president, Andrew Chandler, and all of the club's wonderful volunteers for their efforts to improve access to our beaches for people living with a disability. The club pioneered a beach-for-all program. Their beach access mat enables wheelchairs to get onto the beach and right down to the water's edge, and a submersible wheelchair and disability-friendly surfboard help get people into the water. Now, thanks the generosity of students at OneSchool Global in Adelaide, Seacliff Surf Life Saving Club can purchase another submersible wheelchair and surfboard.
