Thanks to funding from the Santander Discovery Grant, we were able to award 8 clubs in deprived areas of Wales to pilot fundraising activities, designed by the Children in the Club.
Using a donation of £50 and support from Clybiau Plant Cymru Kids' Clubs Training Team, the Children were encouraged to make their money grow, using budgeting tools and fundraising ideas.
Ollie's Club in Flintshire organised a carwash and sold refreshments....this is what they thought about the experience of washing 75 cars!
“It’s going to be so much fun and giving us work experience”. “I like getting messy and wet”.
“Like the experience of fundraising for a Nintendo Wii”.
"Would like to fundraise again. I would like to do gardening next time”.
“I would like to fundraise again for sport equipment , football target goal and tennis equipment."
Congratulations to Ollie's Club for raising a massive £463.61 to buy new equipment for their Club!
We'll let you know about what other fundraising activities and more about this event in the Autumn Edition of Y Bont!
