We have a wide range of volunteering opportunites at the Sand Bothy.

Current opportunities

All terrain wheelchairs for an accessible beach

In 2017 we worked with the Pony Axe S and Promoting a More Inclusive Society (PAMIS) to provide access to the beach for wheelchair users with a specially designed pony and carriage. Then in 2018 we worked with Promoting a more inclusive society (PAMIS) and Aberdeenshire Council to raise funds for all terrain wheel chairs so the beach is accessible to all. The project has been featured the Aberdeen Press and Journal and Evening Express.

The Balmedie Beach Wheelchairs are available free to hire by anyone with impaired mobility or any other disability that prevents them from enjoying the beach.  Find out more on the Balmedie Beach Wheelchairs website.

Paths and signage

We are working with Aberdeenshire Council on improved paths and signage in Balmedie Country Park.

Running the Kiosk

We are always looking for help running the kiosk.
