High School Group:
We are a friendly, inclusive group and a great place for High Schoolers to get together!
We have our regular evenings on the last Friday of every month from 7 to 9pm at the Brightside Centre, Molyneux Drive, New Brighton, CH45 1JT. The Brightside Centre is a great space with fantastic facilities including a recording studio, a main room with table tennis, TVs, and craft area etc. We also have a kitchen and chill out area. Our next meeting will be on the 28th April.
We run lots of activities every month, from football to baking and everything in between. We also have a number of outside events and trips, from Chester Rocks music festival to canal boating, and anything else our High Schoolers fancy (within reason).
Alternatively, if you have any family members or friends who would like to sponsor us on a gift basis, they too can set up a Standing Order and contribute as much or as little as they wanted and this would help us to continue to subsidise future trips in the future.
I would like to try and ask for your help in raising funds for CHICS, a few companies these days do have money set aside to give to charities, and we would be very grateful if you/your friends could possibly ask your workplaces if they could bear CHICS in mind if/when they do fundraising/donating in the future, as this would be a massive help to us.
We do have a few fundraising ideas planned for the year ahead and have been informed that if any of our families work for Barclays Bank, then Barclays will match any funds we manage to raise, if you do work for Barclays or any of your family members, and dont mind helping with some fundraising then please get in touch, you can ring the Wirral CHICS office on 0151 327 4070.
IF YOU KNOW OF ANY FETES OR EVENTS WHERE WE CAN RUN A CHICS STALL TO RAISE MONEY PLEASE LET SHARON OR KIRSTY KNOW.
WE NEED TOMBOLOA AND RAFFLE PRIZES FOR FUTURE EVENTS PLEASE CONTACT SHARON IF YOU HAVE ANYTHING SUITABLE.
