Supporting Local Charity

Walk on hot coals to support local independent charity the Howlands and join in the challenge to raise valuable funds by taking part in an evening firewalk at the Batley Bulldogs Fox's Biscuits Stadium, 7pm Saturday November the 28th.

The Centre supports adults with disabilities through arts and crafts activities and has recently been transformed to extend the work it does with disabled people through taking on extra staff, increasing opening hours, adding classes and more activities.

The centre has been run by the Dewsbury and District League of Friendship for more than 60 years. Disabled people across North Kirklees are supported through arts and crafts activities. Some of their colourful artwork has been displayed at venues including Batley Art Gallery.

One painter, Nico Griffin, 42, of Dewsbury, was born with hydrocephalus, a brain condition which affects his sight, co-ordination and walking. Through Howlands he overcame these problems to create art full of bright geometric shapes.

To help more local people like Nico and help the Howlands continue their success, claim your sponsorship form by contacting Deborah Hall here.
