Fundraiser for team building

A FUNDRAISING event was held to raise money for a course in Eastwood offering support to teenagers out of work.

The Progression Pathways course is being run at the SAFE shop in Nottingham Road through Castle College and is designed to engage local 16 to 19-year-olds who are not in main stream education or employment.

Course leader Tracy Floyd-Jones organised a tabletop sale with a tombola and face painting so the group could get some money together for team building exercises.

Local businesses made donations for the tombola stall and the students made crafts to sell at the event and raised further funds through sponsorship.
