Lifestyle effort was legendary



Have your say

Humberside Lifestylers The Legendary Kids from Hutton Cranswick have had a busy and successful summer holidays.

Their aim was to do good deeds in the community and raise money for Marie Curie Nurses in Driffield.



The team - Charlie Hogg, James Humble, Jacob Farr, Mimi Longden and Marie Kraus - spent a day litter picking around the village in collaboration with Village in Bloom, as well as litter picking and tidying up the school grounds, and getting rid of unwanted equipment. They have received a very appreciative letter from the School Business Manager thanking them for their much appreciated efforts.

The village bulletin awards children at Hutton Cranswick School for the winning designs they use on the front cover, so Legendary Kids thought it would be nice to give something back. They took responsibility for the delivering the August bulletins throughout the village. This helped cover the regular volunteers who were away on holiday, and also gave them chance to chat to local residents about what they were doing and what they hoped to achieve.

A lively ‘Pat a Dog’ session was held at Southlands Residential Home on Friday 8th August when Legendary Kids took their pet dogs to meet the residents and chat to them. This was very much appreciated and enjoyed by both the residents and children (and dogs!)

The most challenging task to date was their 10 mile sponsored bike ride which took place on ‘hurricane Sunday’! Despite terrible rain which started two minutes into the bike ride, the group kept their spirits high, and managed to complete their soggy bike ride in less than 1 ½ hours. Alongside selling quiz sheets to residents in Hutton Cranswick, they have managed to raise over £255 for Marie Curie Nurses.

Not content to raise money for just one good cause, they have also raised over £30 selling raffle tickets on behalf of Royal National Institute for the Blind, and collected many bags of unwanted books which were donated to Wilkinson store to help raise money for Macmillan Nurses.
