The Raft Foundation volunteers and supporters had a day to remember on Saturday 30th April at Gung-Ho, Heaton Park in Manchester.
The Gung-Ho FUNdraiser took place over a 5k course and involved getting over, under and down the greatest inflatable obstacles on the planet and as a finale down Europe’s biggest ever inflatable slide.
Overcoming rain, sleet and snow the team age ranged between 10 and 65 managed to raise over £700.00 towards the work of The Raft Foundation for and with the community of Rossendale.
