    Story

    24 Peakwalkers of all ages will be challenging themselves to raise some much needed funds by participating in the JOY PEAKWALKER 2019.

    Walking will commence on July 4th and end on July 7th

    A team of us will be doing the Yorkshire 3 peaks challenge with a difference in July 2019 we will be covering a distance of 100 kilometres.

    We would like to thank you for all your ongoing support.

    If you are wondering why we are doing this then please READ OUR STORY :

    Jordan Maltby unexpectedly passed away on the 25th December at the young age of 22. As a family going through the motions we quickly realised that there was indeed no help for children suffering bereavement here in Cambridge (or at least very little). Indeed there is only one charity that deals with helping children and their funding is so limited they simply cannot help enough kids in crisis, so with this in mind we set our focus on this as well as helping to raise awareness of all people suffering with mental health conditions.

    We found ourselves struggling with nowhere to go or nobody to help us come to terms with the pain and worse still our children were in the same position, This is why it was important to start J.O.Y and give the gift of joy to those that really need it the most.

    Our initial aim is to raise £100,000 to purchase a holiday home so that children suffering bereavement along with their families can get the much needed time and space to think after losing a loved one, from experience a break away from all the questions and to simply go somewhere without memories is a major start in the healing process. To be able to go somewhere completely new with no memories and to have the feeling that nobody knows you so they are not judging you simply creates a safe haven where you can at least start the healing process. We felt that this is the turning point where you can actually take time to accept and consider things and then you become more open to talking.

    Following on from that we’d also like to have fully trained staff on hand to simply sit and talk, play or just be there to listen to these children giving them an outlet that they will really need and benefit from, giving them someone to confide in and someone that will simply listen in a professional manner, just an outlet that can really make a difference.

    We also appreciate that there is no funding available for mental health so also along the way we will be raising money to support the likes of Mind here in Cambridge and maybe help someone that otherwise would not receive the help that they need, to be overlooked due to funding is something that simply cannot be allowed to happen and if we don't make a change then who will?
