As a charity itself Rampworx Skatepark works closely with other organisations across the country to help improve young peoples lives. Last year we invited a charity from Chernobyl that helps give opportunities to young people affected by the Chernobyl Disaster. These young people have never seen a skatepark before let alone use one, so we like to open their eyes to the different types of sports that are out there in the world.
Rampworx organised a closed coaching session with Chernobyl Children’s Lifeline to give the young people a chance at riding BMX’s, Scooters, Skateboards and Inline Skates for the first time, and they loved it! Sport is such a great way to bring people together from all over the world, even if you don’t speak the same language or have never tried out the sport before.
Each of the young people that attended got to take home a Rampworx Goodie bag full of bits to remind them of their visit to England!
