On Saturday 13th July, we’re hosting our very first sponsored walk to raise vital funds and we’d love you to join us.
A recent poll revealed that a whopping 32% of people did not realise that we are a charity! Maybe not surprising considering that we aren’t your typical charity funding medical research or providing care to those in need.
What we do however, is bring a family together for a great day out and inspire the next generation of scientist on our school trips! We upskill local children, passing on ideas that could mean that one day they go on to make a break-through in science; or it may just mean that we give a child the confidence to put their hand up in class. For us that would be wonderful!
Contrary to what many my think, we aren’t council run and we must stand on our own two feet to survive; and it is through the kindness of individual donations, business, grants and foundations that we’re able to do so.
All funds are invested into the development and delivery of curriculum-related workshops and live-science shows.
The problem is that we’re running low, which is why we’re reaching out to those who might be up for a challenge to help us.
We’re asking all of our supporters, families, businesses, school children, teachers and staff to get behind us and to raise as much as possible so that we can build an even better science centre for even more people to enjoy.
Date: Saturday 13th July.
When: Meet at 11am (allow 2 hours to complete the hike).
Children: Welcome of course! Why not make it a day trip out with your family and friends to get fit and have fun! Prams and pushchairs may struggle so please bear that in mind!
Where: Moel Famau top car park, Penbarras, CH7 5SH.
Refreshments: You’re welcome to bring a picnic, but please ty to avoid single use plastics where possible.
What to wear: Kids (and adults!) are positively encouraged to come in fancy dress.
What to raise: We ask that you try and raise as much as possible for Techniquest Glyndwr and to bring it with you on the day. Your contribution will go towards a new community-focussed exhibit!
Our offer: Raise £20 or more for a chance to win an annual pass to our centre.
Our offer to schools: Get a % off a school trip for every sponsored walker from your school! Bring 100 kids, that's a free school trip!
