Challney Girls raise funds for FUN!
Yesterday, we were visited by year 8 students and Mrs Scholes (Department Leader for MFL and OLEVI programme facilitator) from Challney High School for Girls.
They were here to have a look at our facilities and to present us with a cheque for £450 !
This form group of year 8 girls have been fundraising for FUN as part of a project and really worked hard raising such a fantastic amount of money! They have now adopted FUN as their chosen charity and will continue to raise money for us throughout their high school journey up to year 11 !
Pictured above with Nazma our Services Manager,we have representatives from year 8 and Mrs Scholes for the school.
Thank you for supporting FUN and for your generous donation.

This is the second time that the group has held their UK meet at FUN.
Families travelled from all over the country coming from Manchester, The Midlands, Lincolnshire and even Northern Ireland!
