How Gorilla are getting involved

Bolton Lads and Girls club recently ran a competition entitled ‘Are you Smarter than a 10 year old’ and encouraged all of their patrons to get involved.

Gorilla, the other patrons and the children from BLGC were all given £100 each, and we were all set a task to try and turn this into as much money as possible in 6 weeks.

The team at Gorilla hit the ground running by holding a raffle with prizes ranging from chocolate hampers to cinema tickets. 

We then moved on to more daring challenges! Inspired by ‘I’m a Celebrity, Get me Out of Here’ the team decided to create their very own Bushtuker Trial! We ordered the and crickets, worms and the accountants started asking friends and family to sponsor them to take part!


See how it went”¦
