Breaking the Barrier with Lifeworks

Daytrippers Foundation is a proud supporter of Breaking the Barrier Legacy Project 2019 a free outdoor sport opportunity for children and young people with disabilities.

Breaking the Barrier is Lifeworks flagship adventure sport offer. It offers children and young people with disabilities an opportunity to trial sporting activities that would not be accessible to them otherwise. Surfing, cycling and paddleboard events will take place across Devon and Torbay. The series of events are free, aimed at children and their families, led by specialists and supported by amazing volunteers.

The following events are open to children and young people age 8 and over and their families:

  • Sun 12th May: Surfing at Saunton
  • Sat 1st June: Family cycling at Torbay Velopark
