Dawn is running The London Marathon 2020

Dawn is running The London Marathon 2020

Why we need your help

Our fantastic Splash Programme Coordinator Dawn Whiting will be running 26.2 miles on 4th October 2020 when she embarks on the Virtual London Marathon 2020 (postponed from 26th April 2020).  Dawn will run from our Oxenwood Outdoor Education Centre near Marlborough all the way to our office in Devizes.

The recent pandemic has affected us all in numerous ways.  Many of the young people we support have experienced increasingly difficult times due to isolation, mental health issues, increased responsibilities at home, anxieties relating to COVID-19, home schooling, family breakdowns and in some cases bereavements.  

Now more than ever Wiltshire's young people need the support of Youth Action Wiltshire, and you can help by supporting Dawn and raising much needed funds towards:

Wiltshire Young Carers Service - Keeping Young Carers safe and equipping them for the future.

Splash Positive Activities - Positive Activities for Young Vicitms of Crime and Young People facing challenges in their lives.

Project Inspire - Supporting those Not in Education, Employment or Training to overcome barriers and progress. 

Youth Club Support - Supporting the developement of youth clubs and working with volunteer and young leaders to ensure youth clubs are safe, interesting places to be.

All of our programmes provide Advocacy, Coaching, Youth Worker support, Positive Activities and training opportunities to encourage the development of confidence, self-esteem, social skills and to enable Young People to cope and recover from lifes ups and downs.

Please help Dawn to raise funds to enable us to continue to meet the increasing needs of Wiltshires Young people.
