Thank you for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.
I am walking 10km to raise funds for East End Community Foundation's Newham Giving programme which is close to my heart. Newham Giving is a youth fund that provides high quality youth activities and provision in the summer holidays for locals aged 7-18 years old.
Newham has one of the highest youth populations in the country (approximately 30% are under 20 years old). The borough has the third highest child poverty rate in the UK (42%).
The Newham Giving Programme aims to: Positively impact on young peoples development, reduce anti-social behaviour and improve community cohesion, increase motivation and engagement with education or learning in the school holidays.
Last year in August I visited the summer activities and projects and they are so inspiring, they make such a positive difference to the youth. That this year I thought I would like to participate in a fundraiser to help keep up the service.
If you would like to support Newham Giving please feel free to donate or help me get out the word on social media.
Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving - they'll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they'll send your money directly to Charity Walk for Peace who in turn will match fund every pound you give to Newham Giving youth fund.
Please give generously.
