The Youth Adventure Trust has been using outdoor adventure to inspire young lives for 25 years. In this time, they have helped nearly 4000 vulnerable young people aged 11-14 by providing more than 27,000 activity days. Covering three school years, it is completely free to the participants with every penny coming from donations, challenges and fund-raising.
Mark Brigham, Marketing Director of Ellis Brigham comments, “I had the privilege of spending time in the company of this group, and finding out first-hand the difference that just 6 days of camping and outdoor activities had made to their lives. Their attitude to each other and the way they viewed themselves and their abilities led to such a growth in confidence – it was astonishing. We are delighted to be able to support the work of the charity by committing a minimum of £50k over the next three years.“
