Nick’s ‘3 for Fourie’ Challenge

My name is Nick and I am the family support manager at Holly Grove School in Burnley. On the last week of term I will be starting at the base of Pendle Hill and then ascending and descending THREE times and I aim to do this in under THREE hours! I am asking for donations of £3 or more and I would like to raise £300 for the Georgia Fourie Butterfly Fund. This charity does so much for the pupils of Holly Grove School and their families and I would like to do my part in helping to raise some money. The charity has previously provided grants for families in need, funded holiday clubs and residential trips and bought much needed sensory equipment for school.

(If I fail I will donate £3 for every 3 minutes I go over my 3 hour target)

Please give as much as you can to help this wonderful charity. Thanks in advance. To donate please click here


Charity Night – 10th Anniversary

A huge thank you to everyone who came to our charity evening on the 18th and thanks to those who donated prizes for our auction and raffle.
The evening was a huge success with around 130 people attending and joining in the fun.
The total raised on the night was an amazing £1760. The money raised will go directly into the Georgia Fourie Butterfly Fund and help the children directly by purchasing some items for our nurture room, to help with our pupils wellbeing and mental health.
We want to provide a safe, secure, familiar place for our children to be able to go when they are feeling vulnerable or need extra support.
We appreciate all your generosity and support and hope you will continue to support us in the future.

Thank you to all our sponsors that donated a prize for our auction and raffle.
