3 Peaks Challenge
In June, a team of staff and volunteers will be taking on the daunting ‘3 Peaks Challenge’. The challenge is to tackle the tallest mountains in Scotland (Ben Nevis), England (Scafell Pike) & Wales (Snowdon) in under 24 hours including the travel time in between! The aim is to collectively raise over £5,000 for our work. Training has been well under way with regular fitness sessions and walks at all times of day! If you would like to sponsor us and help us reach our target you can do so here. Thank you for your support!
This year in our assemblies we will be looking at applications for life. We will be travelling round with a giant phone which we will be adding a new app to each term. This term's theme is all about the rescuer, Jesus. We are looking at how Jesus is like our superhero, because He died on the cross for the forgiveness of our sins. If you feel that you could help us with our assemblies, please don’t hesitate to get in touch!
At The Family Trust we have always been ‘free at the point of delivery’ (we never charge schools for our services) and in order to continue to be able to do this long into the future, we need to look to diversify our streams of income in an ever changing financial climate. Therefore we are delighted to welcome Paul Tomlinson to The Family Trust team as our Fundraising Manager.
This term we will be looking at Olympic Values and how God can teach us the different ways to live. The latest teaching can be found on our resources page. Click here to take you straight there!
