Hall night funds Xtreme trips

Hinckley Times - - NEWS -

YOUNG peo­ple have en­joyed some ex­cit­ing away days thanks to a do­na­tion from a com­mu­nity fundrais­ing group.

Elmesthorpe Vil­lagers and Friends As­so­ci­a­tion (EVFA) hosts monthly char­ity fundrais­ing nights in Elmesthorpe vil­lage hall.

One re­cent event raised £250 for the work of Bar­well and Earl Shilton Youth Cafe.

Youth worker Chris New­lyn, who runs the youth group on be­half of Bar­well Methodist Church wrote to thank the EVFA say­ing: “Your gen­er­ous gift has been put to­wards our sum­mer trips this year.

“Your sup­port has meant that we’ve been able to sub­sidise a whole week of ex­cit­ing ac­tiv­i­ties to make them more af­forable to young peo­ple who we have reg­u­lar con­tact with in Bar­well, Earl Shilton and Stoney Stan­ton.”

Al­ton Tow­ers theme park, Adren­a­line Al­ley and Jump Xtreme tram­po­line park were among the des­ti­na­tions on the youth group’s sum­mer hol­i­day list.
