Celebrating Fundraisers

YLF hosted its first celebratory thank you evening with its marathon fundraisers.

This years’ individual fundraising events have been the busiest by far in our fundraising history! We are very honoured that so many individuals have chosen to raise money for YLF by completing hikes, wing walks, runs and more!

Over the summer, not one, but five YLF fundraisers took on the London and Brighton Marathons! So we decided to welcome them all to YLF HQ for our first joint fundraiser cheque presentation and celebration evening!

Each runner had the chance to mingle with other fundraisers, share their stories, their highs (and lows!), and enjoy a glass of bubbly from the Prosecco Wall, with thanks to local business Peggy Sue’s Kent. We presented each individual with a personalised certificate and there was even a photo opportunity with our very own, Lenny the Lion (who could resist?!)

We are so delighted to announce that the grand total raised by our London Marathon runners, Sam and James, our Brighton Marathon runners, Holly, Andrew R & Andrew S, and running group, the Bacon Butty Brigade is an incredible…


This will go directly to supporting our Mentoring service which has seen a 40% increase in demand following the pandemic. It was an honour to be in a room with these fantastic fundraisers and we are incredibly thankful to them all for helping us to Make A Difference!
