We work inside schools to improve the emotional wellbeing of children, their families and the whole school community. Children today have all sorts of worries from friendships to bereavement, domestic violence, gang culture or crime. By supporting children now we give them the chance to work through these issues and grow up with prospects rather than problems.

My page:

Hi, thanks for visiting our page. Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor us and donations will be quickly processed and passed to Place2Be.  

We are driving a 57 year old MkII Jag from Peking to Paris following the route of a famous 1907 rally. We cross the Gobi desert, into Siberia, Eastern Europe, down to Italy and up across the Alps covering nearly 14,000km in 35 days.

My wife, Laura, is a trustee of Place2Be - a fantastic charity helping children, across the country, cope with wide-ranging and often complex social issues including bullying, bereavement, domestic violence, family breakdown, neglect and trauma.

The role of Princess Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, as the Patron of Place2Be has helped to raise the profile of an under-reported but growing problem.

Matt and I would like to ask for your support for Place2Be to make sure that we add even more value to what will be for us a trip of a lifetime.    

Thank you for your support

Doug & Matt
