Karen Mostert, Sean Kristafor and Wayne Gallow, are raising funds for a public beach wheelchair for East London situated at Nahoon Beach, to create a way for anyone with mobility impairment to be able to enjoy the beach, including wheelchair users and the elderly.
Karen and Ingrid are sisters who have always loved going to the beach. When a car accident in 2020 left Ingrid in a wheelchair, going to the beach became a greater challenge.
Karen, never one to stop problem solving, decided to look into getting a beach wheelchair, as the big plastic wheels would make getting across the soft sand much easier. She then realized there was an opportunity to make this resource available to the greater community, and shifted to working on a project to make this a publicly available wheelchair, stationed at Nahoon Beach Surf Lifesavers shack.
We encourage everyone in the greater East London area to support this worthwhile cause and make this a reality.
We have partnered with EduSport Youth, a local non profit in East London.
