Community Challenge

Mix96 and The Vale of Aylesbury Housing Trust have teamed up again to help good causes, and transform part of Bucks for the better.

This year the Puzzle Centre in Middle Claydon was chosen as the winner of our Community Challenge!

They need lots of work done to their garden to make it more accessible to the children with autism and communication difficulties that they look after.

Wes went down with the team from the Vale of Aylesbury Housing Trust to see what work needs doing:

Over the next few months the work (worth over £2,000) will be planned and carried out by the Vale of Aylesbury Housing Trust and their partners and we'll be there to show you all the changes!

MD of Mix96, Max Hailey says he loves the Community Challenge:

"As a local radio station, it's great to be able to make a difference for a worthy, local cause.

"We know there are people out there who need help and we're happy to be able to make sure they've got what they need"

The Community Challenge so far...

The Mix96 Community Challenge has been running for a few years now.

Alongside our friends at Vale of Aylesbury Housing Trust we have given Pebble Brook School an urban farm, Rainbow Totz and the Gap Youth Group got an entire new kitchen, Stocklake Park school have had their outside space and their sensory room totally revamped, and, in 2016, we completely transformed the 1st Eaton Bray and Edlesborough Scout Group's hut. You can see the information below.

Here's what the Scout Hut looked like before we got hold of it; as you can see it wasn't the best place to meet:

Thanks to the Trust, and several other local companies, we carried out even more work then the Scouts were expecting:

A huge thank you to the following companies who helped out last year:

  • TSG – They replaced the central heating system.
  • Worcester – Donated a brand-new boiler.
  • Travis Perkins managed services - Made the windows.
  • Herts Property Services – Fitted the windows, decorated the whole hut and cleared the back yard.
  • ID Verdi tidied up the gardens.

Here are some pictures from the great projects over the last few years:
