Change comes from inside, from the heart. Simply being kind can change the world.

"Stick and stones may break my bones, but words shall never hurt me."

This could not be further from the truth now and I want to help today’s generation of teenagers find themselves and be the great people of tomorrow we know they can be. But they are going to need some help...

I have been running in fancy dress and raising money for Youthline for a few years now and I'm overwhelmed by the support I have received. So, I'm going to keep going as this serious matter of teenager mental health remains in our community and beyond.

I'm therefore extending my challenge to reach a huge target of £10,000.  This extra funding will continue to help reduce the waiting lists and allow even more children to access the help they need quickly. This is driving my desire to help, to give back and focus on the needs of others.

To help me raise this amount I’ll continue to run around Bracknell and spread Christmas joy this year with my Christmas Advent Calendar of Kindness and the count down to London Marathon (April 2024), the Reading Half Marathon 2024 and Bracknell Half Marathon (May 2024) so please sponsor me for all of these events or because I put a smile on your face. Donating the cost of your morning coffee for a week would make a huge difference – that’s my challenge to you!

By helping others and spreading this kindness I am also helping my own mental wellbeing as it makes me very happy knowing that I am making a positive difference. If I can put a smile on your face, raise as much money for this great charity as possible and reduce the waiting time for even one person, then that would be amazing! But I cannot do this without your kindness and donations, any amount helps.

I know this is a very challenging time for us all, mentally, physically and financially, so please look after yourself too and make sure you find someone to talk to, as our children need us more than ever as we are facing a Children’s Mental Health Servies Crisis! 

Keep smiling, be kind, and be the best version of you, you can be.

You are not alone!

Thank you,
