    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    On the 25th May 2019 it will be one year since our daughter Afrika Yearwood took her own life (age 18). A recent investigation and inquest into her death in March this year identified numerous failings by two Leeds Health care trusts and ' lamentable' missed opportunities to provide support for her mental health problems resulting in the coroner serving a 'prevention of deaths order on both Leeds Community Health care trust and Leeds & York partnership Trust demanding improvements to be made to prevent future deaths of young people transitioning between childrens and adults mental health services . If this saves another young persons life Afrika 's life will not have been in vain. Afrika had a passion for sport and played football from age 5 to 17 , at age 17 Afrika and her friend Ellie played for Castleford and won the league before hanging their boots up . Words cannot describe how much Afrika is missed , the void she has left behind, how many hearts are left broken and the impact she had on so many peoples lives , To celebrate Afrikas life we have decided to raise funds for Rothwell Clusters Emotional and wellbeing service to provide additional counselling support for young people , this will enable young people to access support and early intervention . Afrika loved a physical challenge so we have decided to challenge ourselves to the Liverpool to Leeds canal bike ride over two days on the 15/16th June which will see us riding over 125 miles . Both locally in Leeds and nationally we are seeing a new phenomen of suicide in young people age between 16-25
    Our 13. team members that have joined us are all pretty amazing and want to make a difference to young peoples mental health .
