Weʼre raising £10,000 to Pay for PTSD and bereavement counselling for victims of the 14th February shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.

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 charity.

Story

The Cambs Youth Consultation Panel works with the Police and Local Authorities to represent young people across Cambridgeshire.

The panel is made up of young people aged 13 - 16 years and is supported predominantly by the Police (Cambridgeshire Constabulary) and the Police & Crime Commissioner.

When the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting happened on the 14th February 2018 we were all shocked and shaken by what we saw and what we heard. A 'thoughts and prayers' response didn't seem enough for us. So we have thrown ourselves into a campaign that will bring eight students and two adults to the UK on a two week visit.

We are also fund raising to donate money to the school community to help families and students afford counselling to deal with the aftermath of post-traumatic stress and bereavement.

What you see here is the fund that is focused on that part of our project - PTSD and bereavement counselling. Everything we raise here will go to supporting the community in Parkland Florida. This will be a message from young people and families in the UK that we care, and we want to do what we can to make things better.

    Ok - it's early days - but we are planning to host five regional abseiling events. At this stage we are focusing on Lancashire, North Yorkshire, Bristol (Avon & Somerset), on the Sussex/Kent border and Edinburgh in Scotland. We want young people from surrounding schools to join in and raise sponsorship to support these events (there will be ten participants at each event). This is the initial blue print - but there are going to be other sponsored events too. Like tandem sky-diving!

    Ok - so we're a positive action youth group. We have members aged 13 to 16 and we work to make our immediate community a better place for young people. We work hard to break down the barriers that an age gap can create and the prejudices of young and old people.
