A new year is the ideal time to take on new challenges, to get fit or to make those necessary steps to start feeling good about yourself. Signing up to sponsored sporting events is a great motivation to fulfil your New Year’s resolutions.


Will you take on an open water swim, skydive from 10,000ft or tackle a mountain trek? The possibilities are endless. To get some inspiration visit www.tameside4good.org/get-involved/events – just choose your fundraising activity and then get in touch with Tameside 4 Good for a fundraising pack.

Don’t forget. With sporting challenges, your entry fee only covers the costs of running the events so please ask family, friends and colleagues to sponsor you to enable you to make a real difference to local lives.

Every penny donated to Tameside 4 Good funds activities for 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: “Since Tameside 4 Good launched in October 2012, we’ve been proud to help...more

This month Tameside 4 Good would like to recognise David Etchells from EFS Global Ltd  as supporter of the month.

David went the extra mile to support the Tameside Christmas Toy Appeal. He donated the use of EFS Global Ltd’s secure storage from October through to December, sorted the toys into age groups and distributed them to children’s centres around Tameside. David helped to ensure over £20,000 worth of donated toys were available to children living in poverty in Tameside.

Thank you David and his team at EFS Global Ltd!

Have you signed up for ‎Paint It Pink? We’ve set the challenge of getting 100 businesses, schools and community groups to each raise £100 on Friday 12 and Saturday 13th February 2016 to raise £10,000 to improve local lives. We can’t do this without you.

Now in its third year, Paint It Pink is Tameside 4 Good’s annual campaign. We ask schools, community groups and businesses to make a pink splash to raise some cash for Tameside 4 Good. Can you wear something pink, jump in a bath of pink jelly or organise a pinkathon and make a donation of £2 to Tameside 4 Good.

Workplaces and schools could organise a sponsored wear pink day - ties, scarves, nails, wigs or sunglasses. You could collect donations by selling homemade treats (pink ones of course) or running a raffle.

Amy Rowlands, Tameside 4 Good development worker, commented: “#PaintedPink is a community campaign designed to get local people fundraising to improve local lives. We want everyone to show their love for Tameside by painting the borough pink. Not literally of course.

“It is a great excuse to wear something wacky to work or tick an item off your bucket list. Last year, local resident Chris...more
