Freedom Community Project is a charity that was set up in 2008 to support people who are struggling with poverty in Bolsover. The organisation has a small staff team who enable our large team of volunteers to deliver support across the area.
Our Mission is to provide activities that are low cost or free at point of use. To support people who live in deprived areas within the United Kingdom. To care for all people no matter of background, race, religion or sexual preference. To work with people in order that they might make a change in their lives, helping themselves out of the situation they are in and moving into a better future for them and their family.
We need your help to get us to the target of £1000
Please consider sponsoring us as we battle through the dangers of Tough Mudder. Overcoming physical and mental obstacles.

A 56 person team battle to raise £1000 for our partner charity
Brightlife has a mission to help 500 local Chesterfield residents out of lonliness and islation.
They do this by providing telephone befriending calls to over 100 people currently.
Its their ambition to have a walk in centre where they can offer a more holistic support and advice program to help elderly people out of isolation.
With government cuts, fundraising is a staple of the charity. It now has to be run more like a business than a charity as public funding has all but dried up.
The volunteers at BrightLife really do offer a lifeline to many people.
Well, we did it!
Thanks to Libby at Hammonds office we managed to herd cats and get over 50 people to come along and support this charity event.
The day started well, everytone was excited and keen to win. Over 2 hours the teams squared off and went to their allocated tee times. Things were going well.
Then... Mother Nature decided to play!
No one had invited her and she rewarded us with 30mph winds, sideways rain and unplayable conditions.
Most teams were done at that stage but for other unfortunates, a soaking was in order! Some battled the elements to finish their rounds but for others, a pie and pea lunch and a pint in the warmth were the order of the day.
Well done to Jack Oldham and his team who just pipped to win the event and were rewarded with fine trophies!
After lunch, an auction including some fine Ricky Hatton tickets were sold off to raise funds for Brightlife.
Ann Monk the CO of the charity spoke and made people aware of what a huge impact the day would have on the local people of Chesterfield.
Thank you to everyone who came along. Although the rain got some of us, it was a hugely fun event (although Libby might disagree).
We look forward to this being an annual event. See you next year!
