I am fundraising for a group of young people to go on holiday next summer to experience a different culture and install some inspiration into their lives. We are a youth club based in West Norwood called Rathbone. We work with predominately young people from local housing estates and single parent families in the Lambeth area. We have recently been shortlisted for the CYP Now awards. Our youth club runs inclusive youth nights mixing both mainstream and disabled young people and young adults together. We're hoping that this trip will have a positive impact on the lives of the young people we work with and give them ambition and positivity to succeed in the future. You can see more of what we do at www.rathbonesociety.org.uk and read all about our different services. Myself and two of my fellow youth workers, Luke and Arthur will be cycling from our youth club in West Norwood to Brighton which is 54 miles. None of us are regular bike riders, making the challenge that bit harder. This is taking place on Saturday 15th October 2016. We are committed to changing the lives and futures of our young people and will continue to do so. No donation is too little and anything will be much appreciated. Thank you from all at Rathbone.
