Participants will enjoy a range of activities over the weekend including canoeing, crate-abseiling and a question and answer session with the ex-footballer team captains plus a celebration dinner early on the Sunday evening.

The first footballing star to confirm they will be a team captain at the event is ex-Liverpool goalkeeper and European Cup winner Bob Bolder.

Crate abseiling

He said: “We’re proud to support Children Today through events like this and help raise funds for children and young people with disabilities.

“Last year’s event was not only lots of fun but we also raised thousands of pounds to provide vital specialised equipment to give these children the best possible quality of life. We hope that people will now sign up and help us change many more families lives.”

Children Today provides funds for specialised equipment for children and young people up to the age of 25 such as adapted trikes, bikes and wheelchairs to help give children increased independence and help them enjoy a lifestyle or activities that many take for granted.

All accommodation, meals and activities are included for all participants. To take part participants need to pay a non-refundable £50 registration fee and raise a minimum of £300 for the charity.

Crate abseiling

Chief executive of Children Today Charitable Trust Ben Partridge said: “This event is a great opportunity for both businesses and individuals across Lancashire and the North West to come together as teams and tackle an adventurous weekend whilst raising money for families that need our support across the region.”
