EMMA'S FUNDRAISING STORY
Emma Treichl, one of our Trustees, embarked on the 55 mile Coast to Coast Cycle Challenge charity bike ride on 15th of May 2022 from Watchet Harbour in Devon to West Bay, Dorset. Emma has raised over £3,335 in aid of Dorset Family Counselling Trust! Well done Emma!
"It will be a first for me. I hope to share this novel and somewhat gruelling experience, an annual event in the West Country, with other like minded souls. I have to admit that I find the prospect quite daunting but am also excited by the challenge. These last two years have been a particularly difficult time for children and their families. Dorset is currently swamped by referrals from GPs, schools and self-referrals and is speeding through their existing funds. The need to raise further funds has now become pressing.
This has spurred me on to meet the 55 mile bike ride challenge and to do something that will hopefully benefit many young lives and families."
You can still sponsor Emma here.
JACK'S FUNDRAISING STORY
Our amazing supporter Jack Cartwright, aged 22 from Dorset, raised £2000 for FCT by rowing 123 kilometres on a rowing machine (equivalent to crossing the channel!) and asking people to sponsor him.
Jack, who has suffered from anxiety and depression , said "Mental ill health can affect anybody in their lifetime, but physical activity can have a really positive impact on your mind. I hope to provide young people with the inspiration to work towards their goals and futures.”
We’re so grateful for Jack’s brilliant fundraising efforts which will help change the lives of many children and their families. Well done Jack!
