The Door continues to offer vital support to young people and families at this time, and more so than ever as the impact of social isolation kicks in. These are challenging times for all of us, and The Door reports that amongst young people they are in contact with their mood is lower than they’ve ever seen before, and parents are telling them that their anxiety levels are rising. They have adapted quickly, moving all their support services to phone and video calls.
However, with their charity shop closed, and various events which they had fundraisers taking part in cancelled, they are losing around £500 per week.
So, the whole clergy team; Simon, Mathew, Graham and I have decided to step up to their challenge of 100k in May! That’s to run or walk 100km in the month of May to help to raise funds for The Door.

They say; ‘It’s going to be a challenge, but together we can
and keep providing vital mental health support to local vulnerable young people and their families.’
