This year we have chosen the local charity Always a Chance, this charity was formed in memory of 2 young men, James Cooper and James Kouzaris of Northampton who were victims of a needless street crime whilst on holiday in Florida in April 2011. The charity aims to fund educational and mentoring projects for 16-25 year old’s who are already young offenders or heading in that direction, to prevent needless violent crime and to offer them an alternative path through apprenticeships, training and community work.
Our dedicated charity coordinators Julie Mason and Linda Read will be organising various events throughout the year to raise as much as we can for our nominated charity of the year.
