About the group
We are from Eastbourne in East Sussex. We wanted to challenge ourselves and do something we have never done before and take us out of our comfort zone. While completing this challenge we thought it would be good to raise awareness and money for our charity - The Youth Counselling Project. This charity helps children with a history of depression, anxiety and self harming through counselling.

Fundraising for The Youth Counselling Project
Based in Seaford in East Sussex "The Youth Counselling Project" has been set up to
provide counselling in schools in response to the growing number of children suffering from
low mood, anxiety and self-harm.
In the UK, 80,000 children and young people suffer from severe depression, 8,000 of them are under ten years old.
The number of cases of children being admitted to hospital with self-harm has dramatically risen by 70% in the past ten years.
A recent survey showed that the number of children and young people self-harming in East
Sussex is above the national average.
