Children In Need

We've raised approximately £200 and counting!

On Friday 19th November, to mark Children In Need day, we held a fundraiser in the morning at Gannow Community Centre.


The highlight of the fundraiser was our Trustee, Howard Eccles, doing a sponsored silence and he did it! It's hard to believe we know as anyone who knows Howard knows he can talk and talk and talk! It's impossible to shut him up so a huge congratulations must go to Howard.

Howard raised £54.01 from Gannow Community Centre visitors with some money still to come in from the other BPRCVS offices.


We also raised £138.50 with our tombola and raffle which was made possible with donations of prizes from Burnley FC Community Kitchen, Sainsbury's, Pyramid Self-Help Support Group, and even our very own Gannow volunteers and local residents donated prizes.


So far we've raised a combined total of around £210.78 and counting! Well done to everyone involved and many thanks to local residents who participated in the raffles and sponsored Howard.

If anyone still wants to donate then the BPRCVS main office on Yorkshire Street, Burnley is collecting until Friday 26th November and likewise at Gannow Community Centre.
