Cash Giveaway in the Leicester Mercury

LOPC has been shortlisted for the grant to be awarded by the Leicester Mercury in conjunction with the Leicestershire and Rutland Community Foundation.

We will be featured alongside the two competitors in Monday’s Mercury, the winner will receive £1000 which we hope to put towards introducing a new team challenge involving constructing a medieval catapult (trebuchet) and firing water balloons at a target.

Voting opens on Monday 15th Nov and can be done via the Mercury website or by phoning (0116) 2222205, The winner will be the one with the most votes at the end of the week.

Please find the time to forward this on to anyone you know who would support the Centre and get your votes in for us. This £1000 would make a big difference to our ability to offer this fantastic activity next year.

Today's Action! 27.10.2010

This is what has been happening at the LOPC this afternoon!!!

Well done girls!!
A big achievement!!

Big Splash!!!



High All Aboard!!!

An excellent exercise for the whole group. Up to 4 people climb to the top of one post and stand on the same platform. The rest of the group control their ropes. Now the hard part. Lean backwards holding onto each other. Can you keep it together? This needs good communication to succeed. Once you’ve had a go change around.

This is a group of students tackeling the challenge last week!!! Well done everyone! :-D
