Photography Skills Course:
Nurture A Child worked with a Media Design and Production company to devise a course of photography skills training. During the course of the training the company was able to donate a
SLR camera so the young person involved could develop his own skills using some of the techniques learned during the training. The learner took a series of photographs of animals at a
nearby animal rescue centre. These images were subsequently published as a calendar. Donations received in lieu from sales of the calendars will be used to fund further photography
training for the young person.
In the run up to Christmas each year Nurture A Child works with volunteer staff from several Hull based businesses to produce Christmas stocking gifts for local children. Personnel
from the respective companies donate suitable gifts to the cause. Staff also volunteer their time to fill the stockings before they are distributed to youngsters in local care homes,
young people who otherwise would have little or nothing to receive on Christmas Day. In particular the stockings are produced for the older children and teenagers in care.
In total over 500 stockings have been produced and distributed to date. This number will continue to grow year by year
Greater Manchester Marathon Fundraiser:
In April 2014 Matt Dass, Managing Director of sponsor company Eon Visual Media, took part in the ASICS Greater Manchester Marathon. Matt was running in aid of Nurture A Child in his
first full competitive marathon.
Matt completed the course in a highly creditable time and to date has raised over £1,600.00 for Nurture A Child. All the proceeds from Matt's marathon will be used to fund ongoing
projects through Nurture A Child.
Coast to Coast Walk Fundraiser:
In September 2014 Tracey Porter and Rebecca Bramhill undertook to complete the very challenging Coast to Coast walk from St. Bees in Cumbria to Robin Hoods Bay in North Yorkshire to
raise funds for Nurture A Child.
On September 16th the pair dipped their toes in the Irish Sea and 11 days later they dipped them in the North Sea, having covered 192 miles and 3 national parks including the Lake
District, the Yorkshire Dales and the North Yorkshire Moors.
In total the pair raised over £1,700.00 every penny of which will go to improve the lives of children and young people.
