THE chief ex­ec­u­tive of Soli­hull Coun­cil is set to take on a se­ries of chal­lenges aimed at rais­ing funds to pro­vide fun events for the bor­ough’s chil­dren in care.

Nick Page has pledged to com­plete six ses­sions in­clud­ing a fire en­gine pull and Bol­ly­wood danc­ing class.

All money raised will be man­aged by Our Voice, Our Ser­vices ( OVOS), Soli­hull’s chil­dren in care coun­cil who will plan events such as go kart­ing and bowl­ing, for next year.

Coun­cil­lor Ken Mee­son, Cab­i­net Mem­ber for Chil­dren, Ed­u­ca­tion and Skills, said: “Soli­hull Coun­cil takes its re­spon­si­bil­ity for the chil­dren in our care very se­ri­ously; coun­cil­lors and of­fi­cers want to give them the best start in life pos­si­ble.

“Last year we raised more than £ 1,000 to give them the kind of ex­pe­ri­ences other chil­dren take for granted.”

You can do­nate by send­ing a cheque payable to SMBC and ad­dressed to: Chief Ex­ec­u­tive’s Of­fice, Coun­cil House, Manor Square, B91 3QB. There will also be a street col­lec­tion dur­ing the fire en­gine pull on the High Street on Tues­day, Septem­ber 19, at 2pm.
