Ice bucket challenge - to raise money for Mixenden Parents and Resource Centre.

Mixenden Parents and Resource Centre staff undertook the Ice Bucket Challenge which is taking social media by storm to raise awareness of its work. Six of the team from the Stanningley Road centre took a drenching. But before they got wet, centre manager, Liz Child, made a statement as to why the charity, which has operated on the North Halifax estate for 40 years, was taking part. She said: “Charity starts at home. We are a local registered charity working in the heart of the community. Due to major cuts from central government it has not been possible for our local council to continue their support.Our current level of funding will cease in April 2015. Without funding, our centre will close.”
