Countdown has started to secure vital funding - vote now!

BARNSTONDALE Activity Centre, a children's charity that supports over 5,000 young people every year, is hoping to secure a huge funding boost with its bid for a grant from the MCF (Masonic Charitable Foundation) Community Awards. The charity is always seeking to improve the facilities it provides for its young visitors and it hopes to use any funds awarded to improve and upgrade its Adventure Playground and Sensory Area.

Barnstondale offers a safe, supportive and stimulating environment for youngsters from all walks of life, including those with a range of disabilities. It also aims to develop social skills and particular attention is given to young people who may be socially excluded and at risk of becoming disaffected.

The Masonic Charitable Foundation, 1 of the largest grant making charities in the UK, is distributing ₤3 million to 3,000 charities across the country and Barnstondale is 1 of those selected. The funding available ranges from ₤4,000 to a single award of ₤25,000 to the charity in the Cheshire region with the most votes. Go to:- MCF.Org.UK/Vote to cast your vote. The vote closes, on Monday, 31 July 2017.

Barnstondale Centre is an inclusive adventure and activity centre, which features both on site accommodation in log cabins, and a range of indoor and outdoor pursuits, for children and young adults of all ages and abilities. Activities available include climbing, archery, abseiling, kayaking, target rifles, orienteering and river crossing, as well as a range of sports. The centre is situated in 15 acres of Wirral woodland. As a registered charity, Barnstondale relies on donations and fundraising to continue its work.

Heidi Hughes, Business Director at Barnstondale, says:- "We are passionate about transforming the lives of young people, inspiring them to grow in mind, body and spirit. Any funding means a lot to Barnstondale but ₤25,000 would be a fantastic sum and would really impact the young people of Wirral. Please vote for us now!"
