ThisAndy of TheChurchSofa is going to be walking 15 miles across Dartmoor (for those of you who don’t know a very big, fairly empty place, with giant rocks and things in the way, otherwise known as moorland) this Saturday (10th September).
You may be wandering why anyone would do this, well it’s to raise money for the work of Exeter YMCA, the charity that ThisAndy works for. Exeter YMCA work with homeless and vulnerable young people in and around Exeter as well as working in prisons and the unemployed. As I’m sure you’re aware 15 miles is a long way and a lot of it is uphill 🙁 so if you’d consider sponsoring ThisAndy to do it that would be great and make it feel a lot more like a worthwhile activity.

All the money raised on Y-Walk will go directly to Exeter YMCA’s work in helping homeless young people in Devon. Youth homelessness is on the rise and by sponsoring ThisAndy to take part in Y-Walk you can be part of the solution. Through your support, Exeter YMCA is able to provide 14,000 nights accommodation a year to vulnerable young people. We also provide tailored support, helping our young people to overcome the problems which have blighted their pasts. Finally, we equip our young people to lead positive, happy and fulfilling futures.
