Ten Pound Challenge with i61 church 2016

We are pleased to be associated with i61 church and the Ten pound challenge again in 2016.

We are involved with the i61 Ten Pound Challenge in 2 ways in 2016.

  1. Our Chair Pete is building an electric bike to ride the Great Orme in LLandudno. He is looking for friends to sponsor him to raise money for all of the charities involved and at the same time raising awareness for our Dementia Friendly Community and its Dementia Friends. You can donate here.
  2. We would love Prestatyn Dementia friendly community to be one of the recipients of the funding, to enable us to raise even more awareness of Dementia Friends in our locality. You can vote for us here.

The Concept


Connecting & engaging your community:

Initial Purpose

The £10 Challenge was developed specifically to help our local community and connect us with them in positive ways

What we have succeeded to do so far:-

1. Build relationships with local people, local shops and business’s

2. Build relationships with a lot of local individual volunteer workers, charities and local groups.

3. Raise the profile of our church in our community significantly

4. Build relationship with the local press who now run stories almost on a weekly basis during the £10 Challenge

5. Bless a lot of small local groups and smaller charities running some great projects who struggle to secure any funding from government and who struggle to fund raise because of their size. e.g. Brownies, Cubs, Junior football teams, feeding the homeless, Foodbanks etc. Instead of giving our initial outlay of £1,000 to 10 local good causes i.e. £100 each, we were able in year 1, to give each of them £1,000.

This year they are supporting…
  • Conwy Brownie & Conwy Rainbows unit
  • St David’s Hospice
  • Llandudno FC Girls teams
  • Clwb-Yr-Efail, Conwy
  • Craft Companions – Colwyn Bay
  • Rotary Club Llandudno
  • CreataSmile North Wales
  • & 3 to be Selected by Public Vote (lets hope this is us)
