This great event will be happening again on the 13th June 2019. A morning filled with joy as 150 kids from various special needs schools enjoy ice-skating, often for the first time. Volunteers will help them zip their way through the ice either by holding their hand or by pushing their wheelchairs around the rink. Organised by the Ladies of Variety, this event calls in around 60 volunteers, preferably with ice-skating experience.
