Fundraising Update!

Well done Escape!

All customers and staff took part in the walks. Here is a list of places they walked over the week!

  • To the fire station and back = 3.5k done by 8 people = 28K

  • Manchester Rd park and back = 2k done by 9 people = 18K

  • Burrs and back = 6k done by 8 people = 48K

  • Walk up to the top of Holcombe hill and down = 3k done by 5 people = 15K

  • Kirklees trail = 5.6k done by 5 people = 28K

  • Top of the rock and back 2k done by 3 people = 6K


In total they walked 143 kilometres, so managed to achieve their walk to Blackpool and back again!


A big WELL DONE to all customers and staff, you all did amazingly! A massive thank you to everyone who sponsored them too, as they smashed their target and raised a massive £200 in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support. If you would like to donate towards their efforts, please click here.



The team at Escape welcomed back a limited number of customers (to keep Covid Secure) last month. They wasted no time in getting back to their fun and creative ways.

They got cooking with Sue Kelly via the Persona Activity Hub, pampering, milkshake making and training for their 'Escape to Blackpool' fundraiser.
