“Snowbility at The Snow Centre in Hemel Hempstead is a great success story and I have been totally impressed by the success of Richard and his team of coaches. However, most specifically, Snowbility’s students are a total inspiration.”

Sir Mike Penning, MP for Hemel Hempstead

“Snowbility is life-changing and life-giving to children with low self-esteem and low self-belief. A life-enhancing experience providing life skills, social skills and a sense of achievement. It is hugely beneficial to the social and emotional wellbeing of those with additional needs. A real blessing.”

Sarah Secoy, parent

“My son Isaac has been skiing with Richard from Snowbility once a month for over a year and he loves it. Isaac is nine years old and has autism. Richard’s patient instruction has helped Isaac to really progress. We live 50 miles away, but I have to say the 100 mile round trip is well worth it as it may be Isaac’s favourite two hours of the month. Thank you Richard – keep up the awesome work!”

“I can’t thank Snowbility enough for their hard work with my daughter Karla. This is the best thing she has achieved.”

Dawn Milligan, parent

“We just wanted to say a massive thank you to Richard from Snowbility for Sean’s little taster session this morning. This was his first time on the snow and Richard and Sean got on brilliantly. We were excited and a bit apprehensive, but Richard made Sean feel very at ease. We are really looking forward to him having another session. It’s great that there are people around like the Snowbility team, who give disabled and special need kids and adults the chance to take part in activities that make everyone feel normal and accepted.”

“I was very impressed with today’s lesson for my son and his friend. They made so much progress in one lesson. Both the boys thoroughly enjoyed it and are looking forward to the next one. They were so excited this morning and their instructor Richard made it a day to remember, building a very good rapport for them both.”

“You are all amazing!!! From first contact with Richard and Lesley to my boys’ amazing instructors – Al, Michael, Haley and Charlie! It’s made a massive difference to how Oscar and Otis’ confidence has grown from learning through you guys!”
