Team story

[p][b]The charity - Big Change[/b][/p][p]In essence, the idea is "to grow strong children rather than fix broken adults". Big Change is a charity that supports early stage business ideas that help to equip young people for later life. It provides not only funding, but also mentorship and support for these start-up businesses. Here are some of the recent projects https://www.big-change.org/projects/[/p][p]Some stats:[/p][p]1 in 2 prisoners in the UK were excluded from school[/p][p]40% of teachers leave within the first 5 years[/p][p]90% of employers believe that school leavers are unprepared for the workplace[/p][p]Every year in the UK alone we are falling 30,000 teachers short of recruitment needs[/p][p]28% of Children lack the required speaking and reading skills by the time they start school[/p][p]If a child has poor vocabulary at 5 they're twice as likely to be unemployed at 34[/p][p][br][/p][p][b]The event - Strive Challenge 2018[/b][/p][p]A 5 stage challenge spanning from Corsica to Mont Blanc in France, consisting of cycling, kayaking and hiking. [/p][p]Kieron is taking part in stage 3 which involves a 500km ride over 5 days from Nice to Tignes ascending 2000m per day taking in some of the most gruelling of the Tour de France climbs.[/p][p]Matt is taking the baton on to stage 4 tackling a 5 day 100km hike from Tignes to Chamonix through the Alps with a daily ascent of 1000m, staying in mountain refuges along the way. [/p][p][br][/p][p]This challenge takes us both way out of our comfort zone, but we really believe that raising this money can make a difference. [/p][p][b]We appreciate your support![/b][/p][p]Matt & Kieron[/p]
