The staff and young people at Amber House have been on an amazing fundraising journey to raise money for BBC Children in Need.
They got their raincoats and walking boots on to complete a 3 Peaks Challenge, which took in Snowdon, Scafell Pike and Pendle Hill. Although the weather was cloudy, everyone managed to stay dry and thoroughly enjoyed themselves in the fresh air.
Then they held a cake sale, selling cakes to each of the homes, as well as the Head Office, and other professionals involved with the young people. Lee Gregson, Senior Residential Support at Amber House, also rode 105 miles on his bike, cycling in the rainy weather from one New Horizons home to the next.
To celebrate the money raised, everyone from Amber House came to head office. Here they were presented with a large Children in Need cheque by Operations Manager, Natalie Waterhouse. Each young person also received a certificate and a gift.
In total they raised an amazing £2,000.
Well done everyone, a massive contribution to Children in Need!
