Young people take on charity challenge

Youngsters taking part in the Robins Foundation’s NCS programme are taking on a sponsored walk around Bristol to raise money for local charity, Help Bristol’s Homeless.

The group will be walking more than 10km around the city, taking in some of Bristol’s most iconic landmarks along the way, all to raise money for Help Bristol’s Homeless.

The route will see the group of ten (and one dog) depart from Ashton Gate Stadium and head to Ashton Court. From there, they will make their way across the Clifton Suspension Bridge towards the Clifton Observatory, before heading on to Bristol Zoo and Clifton Downs. The group will then make their way back towards the home of Bristol City Football Club via Cabot Tower, College Green and the S.S. Great Britain.

"The current situation with COVID-19 has really highlighted how much we need to support those in need in our community and, as a group, we were really aware of the homelessness crisis that exists in Bristol. We therefore wanted to do something to help the homeless and that is why we have chosen to raise money for Help Bristol's Homeless." Said Eugene Furniss, NCS participant.

The group have already received an impressive amount of support and are taking sponsorship through their GoFundMe page, to support the group please click here.

NCS Coordinator at the Robins Foundation, Carly Price commented: “I’m really impressed with all the ideas that the young people have come up with and how they have worked together to come up with a plan to support a cause that they all feel passionately about.”

The young people are part of the Foundation’s delivery of the NCS programme – a national youth programme which provides young people the chance to have fun, learn new skills and help their community through social action projects.

Last week NCS participants discussed their ideas about how they could help the community and the importance of social action with Mayor of Bristol, Marvin Rees.
