Save the UK's Charities

General fundraising has been hit very hard by the COVID-19 pandemic. Thousands of fundraising events have been cancelled and many charities, particularly smaller ones, are struggling to maintain services because of this huge reduction in income. This impacts all the sectors of society from children to the elderly as well as the vital work in areas such as palliative care, serious diseases, mental health, housing support, food supplies and countless others that charities support.

My 2.6 challenge starts now.

Having been appointed a Duke of Edinburgh's Award Ambassador for Central England I have participated in DofE activities by helping to run a Bronze expedition, presenting the Award system to parents at my school and holding support sessions for current participants in the award. 

Unfortunately, due to the COVID- 19 pandemic various parts of my Gold DofE Award have been put on hold. Since we are allowed to have one daily outing each day at the moment, I have decided to make the most of the time by fundraising for The DofE Award. 

One statistic that stands out to me about The DofE Award is that out of the 280,000 participants each year, 68,000 of them come from disadvantaged backgrounds. It takes up to £29 to start someone's DofE journey. 

I have learnt so much already and I am continuing to learn from taking part in The DofE Award. Even though my DofE journey is coming to an end shortly, I can't wait to see more people starting their journey soon with your help. 

Stay safe and thank you for your support.
