[/p][p]To aid their plans to survive the pandemic, Yes Futures have launched their Summer Showcase Challenge to fundraise for their next programme to support young people.[/p][p]To help them out, I will be completing 26 acts of kindness for 26 days and hopefully inspiring you lot to complete your own act of kindness - donating to this wonderful charity where even a small amount would go a long way.
