We will be carrying out a sponsored walk as well as a camp out in order to raise awareness for the charity threshold. On Monday we will be walking from wootton Bassett to marlbrough and on Tuesday we will be walking from marlbrough to Swindon, finishing outside the threshold office. Threshold is a charity which provides a shelter for the homeless alone side aiding them in rebuilding their life. We will also be raising money to allow us to build survival packs containing blankets and other necessities that will be distributed from the shelter.
As a group of young people currently participating in the NCS programme we're attempting to break the stereotype of a typical teenager, whilst also raising awareness about our chosen charity and abolishing the stigma around those who are homeless. After all, we're all humans with stories.
