Playing pool for pounds 

Active Financial has launched a pool and darts challenge this week to raise money for the High Tide Foundation. 

How many shots will it take you to pot nine balls? What can you score with nine darts?  

Based in Teesside Industrial Estate, the company is charging £1 a go and keeping a leader board throughout 2020 to see who in Teesside will be at the top!  

The challenge is in aid of the High Tide Foundation, an independent charitable Foundation which aims to deliver life changing career experiences to raise awareness of the careers available on Teesside to young people in the area.
