Following the tremendous success of his Lands’ End to John O’ Groats cycle trip last years,
Steve Duncan CEO of the local charity Community Foundation for Calderdale (CFFC), is proving he’ll do whatever it takes to help the young people of Calderdale find employment with this Canoeing Challenge.
Even though the Caledonian Canal Challenge is only a few days in the execution, all the team supporting the charity Working Wonders have been working hard in training for months to raise much needed funds. All funds will go towards ensuring the young people of Calderdale are ready to work and be an asset to the Calderdale Business Community.
The team canoeing the Caledonian Canal included CI Adventures, Harveys Department Store Apprentice Jade Drinnan and Przemysław Łyskawa & Roger Moore OBE.
Working Wonders Ltd was started by the Community Foundation in 2012 when they raised over £150,000 to support young people in Calderdale as part of the Mayoral year.
The project was then called Cycle for Work and was such a success that the Community Foundation decided to create a separate charity dedicated to supporting young people who want to take on apprenticeships.
