On the 6th October 2019 I will be taking part in the Prince's Trust Palace to Palace Bike Ride and I will be matching all donations up to the value of £25,000.
As The Founding Patron for Women Supporting Women for The Prince's Trust I will be riding to raise as much as I can to support our #ChangeAGirlsLife campaign.
The young women we help (between the ages of 11 and 30) are usually living in extremely challenging home environments or in the care system. They may have been abused, bullied or raped. Mental health issues and drug use are common, as is a real lack of parental or emotional support. Some will have dropped out of school or run away from home and generally we find when they arrive, their confidence is at an all-time low, many are almost broken.
Happily however, we've seen time and time again that with the right careful help at the right time, these incredible youngsters can regain their confidence and go on to have happy successful futures. Their stories are SO inspiring please follow the link to read more;
I am constantly inspired by the life changing work of The Prince's Trust and the success rate is impressive. Over 70% of the young people we help go on into further education, a job or to start their own business.
So please do give as much as you can, so we can change as many young lives as possible.
Thank you so much
