Stay Awake!

Over £1000 raised by our young people in sponsored Stay Awake!

On Friday 30th June, a total of 22 young people joined in on our Stay Awake fundraising event which involved staying up all night at our hub in Gravesham, to raise money for our group.

Motivated by those friends and family who sponsored them and fueled by biscuits and hot chocolate – and an outrageous amount of coffee for the adults! – we spent the night playing football, basketball, dodge ball, tabletop games, games consoles, making midnight pizzas, baking at 3am – and more!

In terms of fundraising, our Legends absolutely smashed it and so far, have raised over £1,000 from this event!! The YLF team will soon be heading to the group to do a BIG cheque presentation and thank them for their efforts!

A huge thank you to all those sponsors and of course to our young people who made this happen and made it such a success.

“I was very impressed with how well they did and how easy some of them made it look.  We even had one of the 10 year olds doing cartwheels at 7am to show us he still had loads of energy!” – Volunteer

“Can we do a Stay Awake every week?!” – Charlie (young person)

“It’s easier when you’ve got friends around you” – Mikey (young person)

It's not too late to sponsor!

If you think the group did a great job, it’s not too late to give!
