English Fair Fund2010:
HELPING to maintain the traditions and heritage of the North West as well as improving the quality of life of the under privileged in the region is the key goal of Nick Griffin's English Fair Fund.
The MEP for the North West Region of England was particularly pleased that a recent trip to Ullswater in the Lake District was hailed a huge success by those who attended.
"My political assistant, Adam Walker, arranged the day out for a group of youngsters to enable them to make full use of newly purchased kayaks paid for out of the English Fair Fund, Nick said.
"I bought five kayaks, wetsuits and buoyancy jackets to give some youngsters an alternative to maybe just hanging around the street corners.
"Kayaking is a great way of getting out and about, having new experiences and an enjoyable way of keeping fit. It is good for confidence and team building and can be enjoyed by all age groups.
"The day went well and Adam reported that the youngsters had a great day out and they were so pleased to be able to use this fantastic equipment in such a beautiful part of our country.
"It was the first time they have tried kayaking and was their first visit to the Lake District. They enjoyed the day enormously and were eager to know when they could try it again,” he concluded.
Constituency Office manager Tina Wingfield said that dozens of good causes had been helped with small donations of between £100 and £250.
"Sports clubs struggling for funding and heritage projects needing resources have been helped. We have also made a loan to assist when there was a shortfall in funds," reports Tina.
"The largest donation the English Fair Fund has made was £1,000 to the Cumbria Flood Appeal, but we have also invested in equipment such as the boats and lifejackets."
