Fun day for Our Way in Kidderminster
6:30am Friday 23rd August 2013 in News
A FAMILY fun day is being held at a Kidderminster hotel by a group of teenagers involved in National Citizenship Service.
The teenagers are raising funds and awareness of the Kidderminster-based charity Our Way, which supports self-advocacy in vulnerable individuals.
The fun day will be held next Thursday at the Mercure Hotel, in Habberley Road, from 11am to 4pm.
The 16 fundraisers are aged 16 to 18 and are working under the name Team Yes as part of a summer programme with Engage 4 Life, the providers of the National Citizenship Service in Worcestershire.
The teenagers are from Birmingham and the Wyre Forest area and have been taking part in outdoor activities, meeting new people and developing skills while giving something back to their community.
Activity Tutor Chris Bates said: “The group have planned a cracking day for all the family and I am confident that all their hard work pays off and they are successful in raising as much as possible for Our Way.
“They have quickly established exceptional support and contributions from local businesses and organisations to ensure this event will happen in such a short space of time.”
The event is free to attend and any money made from face-painting, a penalty shoot-out, children’s races, the bouncy castle, family-friendly games, local produce stalls and food will go to Our Way.
Local businesses who would like to book a stall at the event for £15 can call Chris Bates on 07599 933749.
