My story

[p]In 2016, one of the Youth Trust's fantastic Ambassadors, Mr Ian Walker, organised a Trans Pennine Trek, walking and cycling from Liverpool to York - all in aid of the Youth Trust work with children and young people. Since then, the Youth Trust has expanded and is now undergoing a national expansion and so it seems only fitting that the next fundraising challenge should mirror that with a trek from Bishopthorpe to Lambeth Palace! This challenge will involve 2 and a half days walking (c55 miles) and three days on the bike (c200 miles)! Blisters and saddle soreness here we come! [/p][p]Please support me if you can - the money raised will go towards the work of the Youth Trust, working with thousands of children and young people each year through the Young Leaders Award*. See more info below.[/p][p][u]About the Youth Trust[/u][/p][p]The Archbishop of York Youth Trust is passionate about developing opportunities for young people to grow in leadership, faith and character, in partnership with schools, churches and communities. Through the Young Leaders Award, the Youth Trust have empowered over 80,000 young people from over 675 schools to learn and practice key leadership and character skills, to make a difference in the lives of the people around them.
