The game will be raising funds for the Head’s charity Hand in Hand.

Hand in Hand is passionate about giving children born in poverty a hope for the future. Our ultimate aim is for each child’s life to be transformed and the cycle of poverty to be broken. Thank you for fundraising for Hand in Hand! We work through grassroots projects lead by local people who are passionate about seeing the cycle of poverty broken. From the beginning our work has been a team effort with partnership at the heart of all that we do. We are dedicated to seeing children born into a life with no hope through no choices of their own, given a future.  When Hand in Hand began we made a bold promise that every pound that you donate will go directly to our project partners’ transformational work. Thank you for sharing our vision, together we really are making a difference.
