Julian's '100' to support young people

Hi, thanks for visiting my page.

Young people in our schools often face a lot of pressure and find school life challenging. Many of you will know this through personal knowledge and you will also know how close this is to our hearts.

After losing 6 stones and getting fitter over the last 7 months I feel able to do a personal challenge to make a difference. On September 17th 2017 I am going to cycle 100 miles and hope you will get on board.

I looked at the different services and was shocked at how little genuine and dedicated support there is for children at school with mental health problems. The YMCA, however, provides training to teachers, volunteers, peer mentors and also provides counselling, support and so much more.

If you got this far I imagine you are probably going to donate? Thank you!
