‘Birak’ roller-skates help support the Indigenous Literacy Foundation

‘Birak’ roller-skates help support the Indigenous Literacy Foundation

Chuffed Skates isn’t just a roller-skate shop. It is a community where people connect to improve their mental and physical health, and bond over a love of roller-skating.
Ashley Chitty, an Indigenous skater on their team, chose to support the ILF because she wanted to support an organisation that makes a difference in the lives of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children.
