The Georgia Fourie Butterfly Fund, which last year celebrated its 10th anniversary, was set up to raise money for Burnley's Holly Grove School in memory of the popular nine-year-old who died in 2009 after many years of poor health.

And the latest fund-raising venture will see Holly Grove family support manager Nick Barrett is taking part in the '3 for Fourie' challenge, which will see him attempt to ascend and descend Pendle Hill three times in under three hours.

If Nick fails to complete the challenge in under three hours, he will donate £3 for every three minutes he goes over the three hours. Please give as much as you can to help this wonderful charity.

Nick is asking for donations of £3 via his just giving page www.justgiving.com/fundraising/nickspendlechallenge and is hoping to raise £300.

The money will help to to buy resources for school to support the "Catch up" campaign as a lot of pupils are particularly vulnerable with the amount of school they have missed.

Georgia's legacy lives on through the charity and has funded residential trips to Blackpool, holiday clubs and has brought vital resources to the school.
