NCS Fundraising Success!
Young people from a National Citizenship Service have raised more than £400 for us
A group of fantastic young people involved in a local National Citizenship Service (NCS) have raised more than £400 for us.
The group of 15 – from Belper, Ripley, Alfreton, Swanwick and Derby – are part of an NCS project run by Catch22 in Nottingham.
Last Wednesday they ran a pub style quiz fundraiser for more than 50 people at The Lion Hotel in Belper as part of their end of term project.
They voted to support Safe and Sound after looking for a local charity that works with young people.
The £400 raised by the young people could help fund a series of one-to-one support sessions with a dedicated worker for a young victim to help them escape sexual violence and abuse and build resilience to enable them to move forwards with their lives.
We’re all very grateful for their hard work and wish the team the best of luck with their upcoming end of term awards ceremony.
We are always looking for dedicated and enthusiastic fundraisers who are passionate about making a difference to the lives of children and young people in Derbyshire who are at risk of exploitation, sexual violence and abuse or have already becoming victims.
