Surrey Heath Youth Council (SHYC) has presented the charity Step-by-Step with a cheque for £170. Receiving the cheque on behalf of the charity, community fundraiser Gill Butler commented “We are very grateful to the Youth Council for choosing to support our charity and for highlighting the work we do”.
The money was raised through an event in July organised by the Youth Council in honour of the 2012 Olympics and Paralympics at London Road Rec’.
At the event there were activities to please all ages including fun inflatables, home-made cake stalls, ice creams and lots of mini Olympic races. The charity R-U_Able2 also helped organise Boccia and mixed ability football.
Step by Step is based in Aldershot and has been running for almost 20 years. The charity helps homeless and vulnerable 16-25 year olds in Rushmoor and Surrey Heath.
