Media Release

11 February 2020

We're delighted to be supporting Healing Waves - Ocean Therapy. Read all about it below.

 

Healing Waves is delighted to finally announce that as of 2020 two of its founders, Dom and Max have taken on part-time positions within the charity. 

This is a big and vital step for Healing Waves that will help to ensure they can continue to meet the demands of running the service both in and out of the water.  Their priority as always will be facilitating more consistent sessions throughout school holidays for their ever-growing list of athletes. 

February Half-Term is already shaping up to be a busy one for Healing Waves and their first Monday Club group began yesterday evening on the FlowRider.

These part-time positions are certainly a step in the right direction to ensuring Healing Waves can meet all the increased behind the scenes operations, whilst raising awareness on island through fundraisers and talks alike. Their main aim is to become a more sustainable service that will continue to help others, free of charge for years to come.

The two part-time positions were only made possible through the generosity and support of Lloyds Bank Foundation for the Channel Islands who are going to be working closely with the charity throughout 2020 and 2021. 

Healing Waves would have never have dreamed of getting to this point way back in 2017 and are over the moon to see just how far it has all come. Of course, none of this would have been possible without all the love and support they have received within Jersey.

And of course not forgetting their wonderful team of volunteers who continue to dedicate countless hours to their athletes. Each of them giving their 100% focus, support and energy to every session from the moment they arrive to help with set up, until the moment they leave the beach.

Max Wiltshire, Healing Waves commented: “A big shout out to the Lloyds Bank Foundation for the Channel Islands for turning dreams into realities by backing us for the beginning of our next chapter!  Please make sure to invite all your Facebook friends to like our social media pages, as there will certainly be some big things to come in 2020.” https://www.facebook.com/Healingwavesuk/

Jo Le Poidevin, Executive Director for Lloyds Bank Foundation for the Channel Islands explains why they supported Healing Waves: “Healing Waves is a great example of a small but vital Channel Island charity we are keen to support. Their ambition to give individuals with a health condition or disability the chance to access the ocean and catch their first wave has such a positive impact on physical and mental wellbeing and we are delighted to be supporting their work over the next two years.”
