Simon Nichol - Skydive for the Charlotte Hartey Foundation

Imagine standing at the edge of an open doorway in an aircraft flying at 10,000 feet – the noise of the engines and the wind ringing in your ears with only the outline of distant fields below. Now imagine leaning forward out of the doorway and letting go – falling forward into the clouds, diving down through the air as you start freefalling at over 120 mph! Well Simon did not imagine it, Simon jumped to raise £161.40 for the Charlotte Hartey Foundation.

A huge well done, top man and thank you so much from all at the Foundation.

Fusion Arts of Oswestry raise £329.46 at an event held in the park on Friday 30th August

Fusion Arts were asked by the council to put on three events over the summer. The final event which was on the 30th August, the National Citizenship Service Oswestry brands made of ten teenagers, combined with Fusion Arts to create the Multifestifull! This event was to promote cultural diversity in Oswestry. The young people of NCS did this by asking different local companies to represent themselves at the event.

The event had local artists performing in the bandstand of Cae Glas Park. The young people made cakes from around the world and did face painting and henna tattoos. Many local businesses donated food samples and prizes for the raffle. The event raised £320 for the Charlotte Hartey Foundation. The team of 10 youths are very ecstatic about the amount of money raised for the foundation. Lucy Cutty one of the members of NCS said “I’m so happy that we could help this charity as they have helped others and hopefully our contribution will help fund other projects”
