Introducing our Christmas Appeal
You may have already seen, but this Christmas we are asking you to support our Christmas Appeal to enable us to provide a special overnight trip for our young people.
As Islington has the third-highest rate of child poverty in the country, many CYP members are at a disadvantage of not being able to experience the great outdoors and the skills this can bring. Hiking and walking would be the main activities on the agenda, as not only do young people enjoy them, but they are great at improving mental health and wellbeing.
CYP urgently needs to raise £3,000 to enable us to provide a rewarding overnight residential for up to twelve young people. The funds raised would allow us to take young people away from their usual busy London surroundings to a more harmonious countryside retreat. The trip would build upon their confidence, esteem and teamwork skills. Young people would be able to take part in activities that they would never normally do, such as kayaking, raft building and hiking in the countryside. Overall, providing a very enriching and nourishing experience for a cohort of young people.
We really appreciate any donation big or small. To find out more about why we’re raising money, and to donate, please click here.
