Team story

[lt]h4[gt][span=font-weight: normal;]Hey guys! As you might remember, last year we hitchhiked from Sheffield to Bulgaria in 8 days, and had quite a time of it too... well this year we are doing it again! We are attempting to hitchhike from Sheffield to Vilnius, Lithuania in 8 days! [/span][lt]/h4[gt][lt]h4[gt][span=font-weight: normal;][lt]span style="font-weight: normal;"[gt]During this time we will be sleeping rough, conversing with tramps, not washing, barely eating and generally trying to cheekily blag a lift for about 2,000 miles.. we'll be having quite a risky, generally quite crazy time trying to get to Lithuania, and [/span][lt]/span[gt]would really appreciate it if you could sponsor us anything you could spare[span=font-weight: normal;] :)[/span][lt]/h4[gt][lt]h4[gt][span=font-weight: normal;]Any food and accommodation is paid for by us so you can rest assured that all of your sponsorship goes towards these wonderful charities:[/span][lt]/h4[gt][lt]p style="margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px Times New Roman; min-height: 15.0px;"[gt] [/p][lt]p style="margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px Times New Roman; min-height: 15.0px;"[gt] [/p][lt]h4[gt][span=font-weight: normal;][lt]span style="text-decoration: underline;"[gt]Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice: [/span]  [lt]/span[gt][lt]/h4[gt][lt]h4[gt][span=font-weight: normal;] [/span][lt]/h4[gt][lt]h4[gt][span=font-weight: normal;]They provide care and support to families who have a child who has a life limiting condition and is not expected to live into adulthood.

They will often feel isolated as their friends don’t understand why they can’t come out or appear distracted and tired at school. Sheffield Young Careers Project supports young people aged 8-21 across Sheffield who give a substantial amount of unpaid care for a member of their family by organising days out and holidays for these young people so they can get a break and meet people in the same situation.  [/span][lt]/h4[gt][lt]h4[gt][span=font-weight: normal;]http://www.sheffieldyoungcarers.org.uk/ [/span][lt]/h4[gt][lt]h4[gt][span=font-weight: normal;] [/span][lt]/h4[gt][lt]h4[gt][span=font-weight: normal;][lt]span style="text-decoration: underline;"[gt]St Andrews Child Contact Centre:[/span]  [lt]/span[gt][lt]/h4[gt][lt]h4[gt][span=font-weight: normal;]They offer a safe place for children with separated parents come to meet with their non resident parent under the supervision of one of their trained volunteers. Most of the families are referred from the family courts and without this centre the children would probably lose contact with one parent.  They see 12 families every other Saturday and are helping 6 other families with hand over and organising future meetings. [/span][lt]/h4[gt][lt]h4[gt][span=font-weight: normal;]http://www.saccc.org.uk/page/home/ [/span][lt]/h4[gt][lt]h4[gt][span=font-weight: normal;] [/span][lt]/h4[gt][lt]h4[gt][span=font-weight: normal;][lt]span style="text-decoration: underline;"[gt]FoCAL (Social Forestry Ltd): [/span][lt]/span[gt][lt]/h4[gt][lt]h4[gt][span=font-weight: normal;]This woodland charity offers learning opportunities for young adults with autism and learning difficulties.

As many women flee with very few belongings they want to raise money to provide school uniform for the 35 children staying in the refuge so they don’t stand out at school.  [/span][/b][lt]/span[gt][lt]/h4[gt][lt]h4[gt][span=font-weight: normal;]http://www.highpeakwomensaid.org.uk/  [/span][lt]/h4[gt][lt]h4[gt][span=font-weight: normal;] [/span][lt]/h4[gt][lt]h4[gt][span=font-weight: normal;][lt]span style="text-decoration: underline;"[gt]Roundabout:[/span]  [lt]/span[gt][lt]/h4[gt][lt]h4[gt][span=font-weight: normal;]Provides emergency shelter, support and life skills to homeless young people in Sheffield in their hostel and it urgently needs refurbishing.
