BF Adventure, which helps disadvantaged and disabled young people and adults at its activity centre at Goodygrane near Penryn and across the county, is getting in the Christmas spirit early this year as the North Pole has asked us to run a Santa Boot camp.

We are seeking  Santa's and their team of elves or reindeer to prepare themselves for the big day this coming Christmas by taking on our challenge of delivering presents whatever obstacles lie in their path; flying through the air, navigating across land and crossing over water!

Teamwork and problem solving will be tested before the teams descend down the chimney to deliver their presents.

The event will help raise vitally needed funds for the Charity enabling us to continue to deliver our services and to help bring about many Brighter Christmases to come.

More details can be found at the BF Adventure website http://www.bfadventure.org/event/quarryathon/

Event Details:

• Sunday 17th November

• 11am - 4pm (Start Times – From 11am to 3pm)

• Teams or 3 or 4 (Min age 14yrs)

• Family & Corporate Teams

• Entry includes a Christmas BBQ, Mince Pies and Mulled wine

Every year BF Adventure, formerly known as Bishop's Forum, helps hundreds of disadvantaged and disabled children and adults in Cornwall to believe in themselves and gain the skills and accreditations to succeed at school or to find employment.

In total the centre runs more than 8000 activity sessions for over 3000 individuals annually.

In 2013 as well as activity days and short residential stays, the charity ran structured long-term programmes for 50 young people aged 14-19 who are not in education, employment and training plus 78 children who had been excluded from school.

In addition, BF Adventure helped 120 primary school pupils on early intervention programmes and 150 disabled children and young people on activity breaks with their family or friends.

Voluntary roles include supporting instructors with outdoor and adventure activities, office-based support or maintenance, or helping with a specific project such as a fundraising event or offering services in kind.
