    BRADFORD E:MERGE

    This project was started a number of years ago by a Church of England parish church in Bradford. Since that time it has become independent but the leaders have a strong personal faith which clearly motivates what they do. Children in Need funding specifically pays for the healthy lifestyles workshops and after-school clubs in Bradford (primary and secondary).
