HARD-WORKING youngsters have organised an action-packed fun day as they attempt to raise cash for three Hartlepool charities.

The Neighbourhoodies, who are based at the Phoenix Centre, in Hindpool Close, organise a number of events every year to support their chosen charities.

This year the causes they are hoping to boost are the Denise Taylor Cancer Trust, Hartlepool Carers and Jailed 4 Georgia, a campaign to support Hartlepool youngster Georgia Hart who is suffering with a rare heart condition.

And the kindhearted youngsters are hoping a substantial amount will be raised on Saturday at a fun day at the Phoenix Centre, on the Central Estate.

There’s something for all the family at the event which will run from 11am-2pm.

Tombolas, raffles, cake stalls and a variety of other stalls will all be set up while youngsters can have hours of fun on bouncy castles and inflatable slides.

A number of games, activities and crafts will also be running during the day.

The Neighbourhoodies group was set up by local police and housing organisation Housing Hartlepool and the crimefighting members aim to cut the amount of anti-social behaviour in the town.

Natalie I’Anson, tenancy relations enforcement team support officer for Housing Hartlepool who works alongside the Neighbourhoodies, said: “The young people have worked extremely hard organising the event and I’m sure it’s going to be a great day.

“Last year they raised around £300 at a fun day on the way to raising £600 throughout the year so if we could raise anything like that again it would be a huge success.

“Our members chose the charities they are supporting this year.”

The Neighbourhoodies meet on two Wednesdays every month at the Phoenix Centre.
