THE sale of nearly 2000 doughnuts has raised $1600 for the Disabled Surfers Association Mornington Peninsula branch.
Using the lure of doughnuts to help people with a disability go surfing was the method of choice of members of Haileybury College’s Aikman House.
“Haileybury College has supported our surfers for many years before the COVID pandemic, and they were super keen to fundraise again this year,” DSAMP president Pea Saunders said.
“Along with fundraising, Aikman House students volunteer their time at DSAMP’s January event at Point Leo where they assist people with different abilities to experience the joy of being in water and having a go at surfing.
“This is a win-win opportunity for the surfers and students, whereby both groups get to experience the possibilities of what can be done when there is great community support.”
The DSAMP will next year hold surfing days at Point Leo on Saturday 21 January and Saturday 4 March.
