iPads for Young Bristol !

Paddy Grace (MF trustee) delivered iPads for Young Bristol today.


The Young Bristol team were really grateful for the iPads and will send photos and details of the projects they will be used in as soon as they get going!

Felix Road Adventure Playground

Paddy Grace (MF trustee) presented Mandy Wilson and colleague from the Felix Road Adventure Playground, Bristol with a donation cheque from the Mears Foundation.

Mandy said.’Thank you ever so much for your support, you are like the real Santa Claus!'

The adventure playground allows kids to come and go as they please, with no entry fee. Both kids and adults can learn self-defence at the martial arts classes held at the park.
