Mechanic or engineering volunteer

Could you help us to design, create, develop or modify equipment so the beach is more accessible for wheelchair users.

For example;- at the moment we are in the process of trying to develop a powered platform so wheelchair users can stay in their existing chairs whilst accessing the beach.

Or maybe you have maintenance skills and you could help with cleaning the wheelchairs and some basic maintenance and repairs.
