Fresh Start - new beginnings

We support victims of child sexual abuse to help move from victim to survivor

Charity Registration No. 1149347

Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

In August 2018 I will turn 50.  To celebrate I have decided to realise a long standing ambition of mine to ride the length of Great Britain on my bespoke Roberts bicycle.  I will be fully funding my ride and all associated costs will be paid by me - it is after all my dream holiday!

No long distance challenge would however be complete without trying to do some good for the community that I come from.  This year the Ipswich Round Table has chosen to support Fresh Start - new beginnings and as a past Chairman/President of Ipswich Grefriars Round Table I am happy to pledge my support to this local Suffolk and Norfolk cause.

Fresh Start - new beginnings was set up to provide a therapeutic service for children and young people across Suffolk and Norfolk who have reported being sexually abused and to offer support to their families. 

Their aim is to help children and young people make sense of the confusion they feel and to teach them coping strategies to deal with the difficulties they face.  Fresh Start - new beginnings highlight their strengths and potential so that they are able to move from victim to survivor. 

Please remember all donations go straight to Fresh Start - new beginnings, no part of any donation pays for any of my costs - you are not sponsoring me to go on holiday!

You can read about the highs and lows of riding up to 100 miles a day on my blog, james108campbell.com which I will be updating before and during the ride.  Please note the views expressed are my own and not that of Fresh Start - new beginnings! 

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 the charity. So it's the most efficient way to donate - saving time and cutting costs for the charity.
