Story

Action4Youth is a leading young people's charity in Buckinghamshire & Milton Keynes which provides positive, often transformational experiences and activities that enable young people of all abilities to grow and develop. Since 2019, David's involvement with A4Y has allowed him to see how 25,000 young people benefit each year from the charity's many programmes, including an outstanding outdoor education centre - The Caldecotte Xperience. TCX provides fully-inclusive activities for all young people, including those who have SEND and other complex needs

TCX is now 30 years old and requires a significant investment of £1.4M to upgrade facilitiesimprove accessibility and provide year round activities for all.

Galvanised by the need to raise funds, we have set ourselves the challenge of running the Milton Keynes half marathon on May 1st 2023. This is no mean feat given David's longest distance to date is 7 miles, and Cathy's last half was in 2002, but we are game! 

We would very much appreciate your support in our endeavour and will match any funds that you donate, up to our fundraising target of £2000
