The Peter Lathom Charity


Sporting Challenge are celebrating a £500 donation from the Peter Lathom Charity. This grant will fund some of parts of the group’s activities.

The Peter Lathom’s Charity provides grants to individuals in particular need and to local groups working with those in need – for further details contact Brighouse Wolff solicitors (In West Lancs) who act as clerks for charity.

Registered charity Sporting Challenge was set up in 2008 by a group of parent carers to provide sporting activities for around 45 people with learning disabilities to keep them fit and healthy.

The Activities take place across West Lancashire during the evening and sometimes at weekends.

Edward McCarthy Sporting Challenge Activities Co-ordinator said: “The funding award is fantastic news and helps fund our activities which our group really enjoy. Our group enjoy our sessions, and at the same time their families will be also to be able to have a short break too from their carer duties.”
