We support children and young people to postively change their mental health


The walk takes place from Friday 22nd June to Saturday 30th June, starting in Southwold (in Suffolk) via Cambridge and ending at our offices at Wrest Park Enterpise Centre in Silsoe.

I'll be walking 12 miles a day with an overall target to raise at least £21,000 in recognition of our 21st anniversary!   This will be a huge physical challenge for me. 

This is clearly a very big target, so I will need as much help as possible to achieve that. So if you want to help us, we are looking for supporters to  join the expedition on different legs of the journey and raise their own £200 to go towards our overall target.

I'm really passionate about showing young people that they must never give up. If I can get fit and walk 100 miles, then they can achieve things in their lives they never thought they could. 

I won't be able to achieve this alone but by getting the right support from the right people and being determined to succeed, anything is possible.
