Learning disability charity MacIntyre encourages you to “get moving” this March for people living in or visiting the wrexham area

A learning disability charity is encouraging people to “get moving” and take part in its fundraising challenge.

MacIntyre, a charity that supports people with learning disabilities and/or autism in Wrexham recently launched its ‘Move with MacIntyre’ challenge, which is taking place until the end of March.

It encourages people from across the country to get on their feet and take part in an exercise of their choice to raise money for people with learning disabilities and/or autism.

Last year, the challenge raised over £4,500 which was used to purchase technology such as iPads and laptops, providing opportunities for the people supported by MacIntyre to communicate with their families and friends during such a challenging year.

This year the funds raised from the challenge will be used to purchase outdoor and gardening equipment for the people supported by MacIntyre.

A spokesperson for the charity, said: “There are plenty of ways to get involved, whether you like to dance, walk or jog.

“You could challenge yourself to climb your stairs, counting your steps until you reach the equivalent of Mount Snowden, or hop on a bicycle and see how far you can cycle each day.”

If you want to take part in the challenge MacIntyre are sharing a free Move with MacIntyre downloadable calendar, where you can colour in each trainer and share your calendar on social media using #MovewithMacIntyre. You can also draw your favourite activity and share this with the the charity.

You can support the ‘Move with MacIntyre’ challenge by donating directly to the fundraising page.

You can also donate £5 by texting MOVE to 70490.
