Get involved in our Team Challenge Event this November!

We are excited to announce that the theme for this year’s Team Challenge Event is #BuildingBridges

What is Building Bridges?

Based on the huge number of challenges young refugees face when arriving in the UK, we are aiming to collectively cross 500 bridges throughout the month of November to try and raise £10,000 towards our work.

From language barriers, mental health needs, and a lack of confidence, to financial obstacles, isolation, and limited access to education, each bridge we cross will represent a significant obstacle preventing the young people we work with from moving forwards with their lives, achieving their aspirations, and reaching their true potential.

That is why we are asking you, our amazing supporters, to wrap up warm and join us in our attempt to cross 500 bridges (that’s 5 bridges for each of the 100 young people we plan to work with next year!)

It is up to you how many bridges you plan to cross throughout November.

And it is up to you to decide how you are going to cross those bridges.

You could walk across your local bridge every day, or team up with friends and cycle to a famous bridge once. We’ll even count it if you choose to swim or row under them!

Whether you cross 1 bridge, 10 bridges, or 100 bridges, your efforts will go directly to supporting young refugees and asylum-seekers to access education and get the one-to-one support they need.

Stuck for an idea or want to join others?

Join us on Saturday 27th November to take part in the famous Thames Bridge Trek!

Walking alongside the beautiful River Thames, we will be aiming to cross 16 historic bridges in London over a course of 20km (our longest walk yet!).

If you’d prefer to join us for just part of the walk, that’s fine too!

Sign up on our event page HERE and we’ll send you all the information you need in preparation for the day!

From all of us at Hope for the Young, thank you so much for your support.
