Thank you to everyone who supported our fundraising campaign #PaintedPink. On Friday 12 and Saturday 13th February 2016, from pink tea parties to a sponsored canoe along Ashton Canal you raised £5223.70 to improve local lives.
Workplaces and community groups across Tameside organised fundraising activities. The Grafton Centre in Hyde hosting a party with Tameside Voices performing and a pink quiz which raised £260.51. 12th Ashton Rainbows organised a sponsored gymazing event which collected a whooping £350.20.
Every penny donated to Tameside 4 Good funds activities for disadvantaged young people, aged 5 – 25, and Tameside community group projects that alleviate poverty, improve health, and develop skills, education and employment.
Amy Rowlands, Tameside 4 Good development worker, commented: “I would like to thank everyone who organised, attended and donated to #PaintedPink activities. It was fantastic to see so many fun and creative fundraising activities taking place across Tameside. It created a swell of community spirit as local people fundraised for Tameside 4 Good which aims to improve the lives of local people.”
