18 hour stay up

Young people from the Wisbech area stayed up all night to raise money for a child cancer charity.

The group of seven from Elm and Friday Bridge Youth Club completed the challenge at the Elm Centre last week.

Throughout the night, the young people completed 14 tasks and challenges to keep them awake, including an assault course, a Ready Steady Cook challenge and a tent challenge.

They were raising money for Families Against Neuroblastoma (FAN), a charity based in Elm. Neuroblastoma is an aggressive type of childhood cancer which attacks the nervous system, and can therefore affect every part of the body.

The charity is dedicated to providing support, information and assistance in all aspects of dealing with Neuroblastoma, including funding for specific research into new treatments of the disease.

Wisbech Deputy Mayor Jonathan Farmer and Deputy Mayoress Susan visited the young people during the challenge and joined the group for dinner before participating in some team building games.
