The Big Yorkshire COTE Fundraiser

Children on the Edge (COTE) working with The Body Shop exists to help marginalised and forgotten children who are living on the edge of their societies.

These are children without parental care, neglected or persecuted by their governments, ignored by international media and missed by large overseas agencies. They are children on the edge of society.

Forgotten – but not by us. Everyone deserves a childhood.

This fundraising event will be on Saturday 13 July, 6:00pm onwards at The Arches, Dean Clough, Halifax HX3 5AX. There will be entertainment including a magician, live music and a DJ. Dress code is Evening Wear.

Tickets are £32 by contacting Maria Bouckley on 07827 339746 or email mariabouckley@hotmail.com
