York schoolboy charity walk, 9th July 2011

Danny Aitken, a schoolboy from York, is preparing to walk around York city walls five times for charity after learning that his grandfather is suffering from cancer. Danny, aged 12, hopes to raise £2000 for The Prostate Cancer Charity in honour of his grandfather John Houston. Despite suffering from severe asthma, the Manor School pupil is determined to finish the ten-mile walk.

Pot Luck Charity Presentation

The Friends of York Walls thank York CVS for hosting the ‘Pot Luck’ meal and the charity presentations evening. Great food, excellent networking oportunities and of course many, many thanks to the people who voted on the night for the £300 that we won from the pot.

The money will be utilised to help produce an Activity Family Wall Walk booklet. One of which is to be trialled soon. What this space!
