The Made In Chelsea star has agreed to do an hour’s surf lesson at Croyde beach in Devon to the first person to donate £500 or more to the online appeal.
It is part of a campaign by The Wave Project to raise money to buy specialist disability surfing equipment and a van for its successful surf club for disadvantaged children.
Andy said: “I’m stoked to be supporting The Wave Project with this fantastic appeal. I really hope people will get right behind this amazing organisation and help them hit their target.”
Mr Jordan will also be signing 10 limited edition Wave Project t-shirts, which will be available to people who donate £50 or more.
Also supporting the appeal are former UK surf national champion Russell Winter and pro surfer and former English national champion Hannah Harding.
They are offering three surf lessons to people who donate £250 or more.
The Wave Project aims to raise £5,000 by 28 March, which will be used to buy a beach wheelchair, specialist adaptive surf boards and a new club van.
It will enable the not-for-profit organisation to continue to provide free surfing lessons to some of the South West’s most isolated children and young people.
Everyone who makes a donation will also get their name printed on the side of the van.
Wave Project chief executive Joe Taylor said: “We’re really grateful to Andy, Russell and Hannah for their wonderful support. This Crowdfunder appeal is really important to our future ability to be able to provide free surfing lessons for disadvantaged children.
“We thought that by adding the name of everyone who donates to the side of the van, it will be a great statement of how community power can make good things happen.”
