Events

Annual Quiz Night

The annual Quiz Night held in December 2013 was another success for the charity. Thirty three teams of four had a thoroughly enjoyable time in Retford Oaks Academy. The winning team was Simple Minds One who scored 109 points out of a possible 130.

The date set for the 2014 Quiz Night is Thursday 27th November

Sewhat 2014

The event was a great success for us and the young people involved thoroughly enjoyed celebrating their creativity. Over 200 children and young people from 13 organisations were involved, each one keen to show an appreciative audience of over 400 people, garments, hats, masks, bags, jewellery which had been made from the drawing board or customised for the event. The funds raised through ticket sales went directly into the grant giving trust of the charity for re-distribution through the grant application process.

Annual Fun Run

The annual 10k Fun Run took place on Sunday 11th May. The event was kindly sponsored by the Rotary Club of Retford and The Dukeries Rotary Club. A1 Housing Support Services staff helped with the administration on the day and the Worksop Army Cadets with the comfort points. Despite poor weather conditions over 170 people took part and thoroughly enjoyed the morning. The event helped to raise much needed funds for the charity and many of the organisations who took part raised funds for their own clubs through sponsorship. The first young person back was Matthew Parkin in just 42 minutes shortly followed by Jack Couldwell.

It is hoped that the 2015 event will be on the 10th May 2015 – this will be confirmed later.

Golf Day

The charity hosted a stableford competition at Kilton Forest Golf Course on the 14th June 2014 and received much support from many organisations within the area through entering a team or sponsoring a hole. All the prizes were kindly donated by local golf clubs. The winning team lead by Pete Rinkcavage won a round of golf a Lindrick. In second place was a team of juniors from Outwood Academy Valley who won a round of golf at Retford. All the funds raised on the day through sponsorship goes to supporting the grant giving trust. FoYPiB would like to thank volunteers who helped and all involved who made this a great day.
