Support Charlie’s Challenge

Local Peterborough resident Charlie Edwards will be fundraising by trekking Ben Nevis.

We are delighted that local Peterborough resident Charlie Edwards has chosen to raise funds for YPCS by taking on the challenge to trek Ben Nevis on 10th September and wish her well in this tough personal challenge.
 
Charlie has direct experience of a close family member suffering with poor mental health and so knows at first hand the impact this has on those that suffer, as well as the effect this can have on their families.
 
As the theme for Mental Health Awareness Week this year was nature, Charlie has chosen her challenge to trek Ben Nevis to link her fundraising efforts with this theme.
Charlie told us, “I think it’s fitting with how the past 18 months have been with lockdowns and restrictions – finding ways to get outside to benefit our mental health. I have set myself the challenge to climb Ben Nevis in the hope to connect to nature and raise money for charity.”

In ‘Resilient Voices,’ publisher and anthologist Brenda Dempsey brings together 45 voices to share their true stories of resilience, positivity and hope from a pandemic.
 
Sharing their experiences of surviving through a pandemic, and other stressful situations life throws at us, the 45 Voices come from all walks of life – from doctors and nurses, to parents and business owners – raising their voices and sharing their real-life inspirational stories, to show their bouncebackability and resilience.
 
Each of the contributors are New-Found Heroes in their own way, baring their souls and finding the courage to allow themselves to be vulnerable, in a pandemic that in many ways unites us.
 
All profits of Resilient Voices will be donated to the NHS in gratitude for their commitment, dedication and going beyond the duty of their role to support, help and protect lives.

Runners Brave Torrential Rain to Run the GER for YPCS

On Sunday, 14th October 2017 YPCS formed its first every running team to run the Perkins Great Eastern Half Marathon & 5km Fun Run. The weather was torrential rain for the entire event but despite the challenging conditions, everyone completed their run.

Supported by Equiniti Plc, who provided the running shirts, the team has already raised over £5,000 which is an incredible amount that allows YPCS to counsel another 13 young people during 2018.

A massive thank you to everyone who took part in the event & to Equiniti Plc for their support.

Rotary raises £1000 for YPCS

The Whittlesey Rotary were able to handover a cheque for £1000 to Mrs Nicky Baker, a trustee for the local Charity. The money was raised through a beer festival organised and supported by the group in the town earlier in the year.

At the meeting held at the Falcon on in August, Mrs Baker was able to share information about the charities accomplishments over the last 18 months and also discuss some of the main issues that some of our young people, looking for help, struggle with.
The group showed increased concern over the long waiting lists and expressed an interest in supporting the charity in the future.
