A CHARITY for children with speech difficulties was able to hold play days this summer, thanks to fundraising.
The Association For All Speech Impaired Children (AFASIC) funded its scheme after raising more than £1,000 from this year's Examiner Charity Challenge in May.
The children visited Ashbrow Children's Centre, at Ash Meadow Close, one day a week over a five-week period.
They took part in activities including painting, modelling, sports and baking.
Chairman for the West Yorkshire Group, Elaine Chilton, hailed the scheme a huge success.
She said: "The children had a great time. It gave them a chance to get involved with other children from across Kirklees with similar problems to themselves.
"It also allowed the children to mix with people other than their immediate family and give their parents a break as well.
"We are hoping to do the Examiner Charity Challenge again next year and raise enough cash to do the play scheme again."
