The deserved winners battled through a series of challenges set up by the Mixenden Activity Centre, West Yorkshire Police and West Yorkshire Fire Service to win the very first Mini Mixmatch Challenge which took place on Tuesday 21 June 2016.

The event, which will be repeated on a yearly basis came about as a result of the annual Mixmatch School Challenge that takes place between Trinity Academy and Park Lane Learning Trust, which now in its 3rd year, has been seen to help reduce youth anti social behaviour and deliberate fires in the area.
