You probably know that last month Potteries Active Kids founder Frank Murphy, and one of the kid’s parents Andy Vickerman took on the challenge of running the Pennine Way; the spine of Great Britain, the oldest and possibly the toughest national trails around.
They did it to raise much needed funds to put into Potteries Active kids to set up and facilitate activities that the kids of the Potteries can embrace and enjoy for years to come.
There were lots of generous donations to help inspire and encourage them on their journey, so far they have raised nearly £3000.
We have to give a HUGE HUGE thank you to local firm NWF Fuels of Newstead, who gave a massive and very generous contribution to the pot to enable us to help your kids to embrace a healthier, happier and much brighter and enjoyable future. Thank you to one of our regular kids parent, Phillip Beckett for kindly thinking about us and approaching NWF fuels with news about what we are trying to achieve, and thank you to the bosses and employees for being so accommodating and passionate about the children of the Potteries!
