My story

[p]Ben, Luke and Jono have decided to embark on a rather challenging adventure, cycling from London to Istanbul! [/p][p]Their planned route will involve cycling the length of the M25 every single day and climbing the height of Mt. Everest four times over the journey, all whilst carrying everything they need to survive. But why cycle 3,151km across the entire European continent? [/p][p]They are raising money for XLP. The recent headlines have been awash with stories of young people in London being involved in stabbings and gangs. XLP work across inner-city London supporting young people make positive futures for themselves. They work on young people’s estates, schools and through their passions to offer them positive alternatives, help them stay in education and have a hope-filled future[/p][p][url=https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLlFPSnu6TU105Zky0eyTUqXNFpDrqya_V]Click here[/url] if you’re interested in hearing about XLP from a young person’s perspective. Everything you donate will go straight towards XLP’s work, as the boys are self-funding their trip. [/p][p]Ben first became involved in XLP through volunteering on their mentoring programme, which partners an at-risk young person with a mentor for 12 months. Meeting up every week often provides the mentee with their first consistent, positive adult role model who helps them work through whatever they are facing.[/p][p]Please give generously![/p]
