Two events raised over £2,000 towards a charity’s fundraising campaign to equip their new purpose built centre of excellence.
Carnforth based Unique Kidz and Co needs to raise £200,000 for equipment and furniture for their new centre at Lancaster Leisure Park by Spring next year.
A team led by Ellen Smith from Lancaster, completed the ‘Total Warrior’ challenge at Shap raising £1,000 for Unique Kidz and Co.
The six mile obstacle challenge included crawling through tunnels, climbing 7ft walls and crossing electric fences.
Ellen says, “Our Total Warrior Team raised funds for the Maisie Yazmin Hill Fund which supports different charities each year.
“Maisie had a condition call SVT (supraventricular tachycardia) and she sadly passed away, suddenly aged just five weeks.
“Her parents Dawn and Ian from Carnforth set up this fund in her memory and this year Maisie’s fund is supporting Unique Kidz and Co.
“It was a fantastic day and the course was very tough, wet and muddy but so much fun.
Another great fundraising success was the charity Zumbathon which raised £1,000. Organised by Heysham resident Emily Wilson at Salt Ayre Leisure Centre it was attended by 120 dancers who danced for three hours.
Jane Halpin, Co-Founder of Unique Kidz and Co said, “The support of businesses and the community is vital to raising the £200,000 we need to equip our new centre, so we want to thank everyone involved in these two events for their support in helping us to achieve this.” Visit www.uniquekidzandco.org.uk.
