Park Road Charities Boost

  • Fun Run Charities - Derian House, Parkinsons, Cash for Kids, Dementia UK
  • Fun Run Charities - Parkinsons
  • Fun Run Charities - Cash for Kids
  • Fun Run Charities - Derian House

Four charity representatives were delighted to attend Park Road, the Junior School of Bolton School Boys’ Division, with each one picking up a cheque for £1,880.40. Earlier in the summer, over 200 boys in Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 and their teachers undertook a fancy dress fun run around the playing fields of Bolton School. Raising a grand total of £7,521.60, the money was split amongst the four Forms (Crompton, Chadwick, Lever and Dobson) who chose where the funds should be allocated to. 

In a full assembly, the boys learnt more about how Parkinson’s UK would use the money to help improve treatments and for research, Cash4Kids would make sure the money went to less fortunate children in the Manchester region, Dementia UK would be able to help families deal with and understand the disease and Derian House would utilise the money to help local children (from birth to 26 years of age) deal with life-threatening conditions.   

A further £500 was also raised on the day of the fun run for the We Love Manchester campaign.
