Monies raised will be donated equally to the following two charities.
bccs: bccs provides highly professional and well‑supported Social Workers and Counsellors to help children and young people who are in need.
bccs works in the East End of London and Essex with children, young people and their families and schools to help them overcome emotional difficulties, behavioural problems and their root causes. The prime focus of the work is to provide an early intervention service to enable them to address difficulties that may be impeding their educational, social and emotional development.
The Prince's Trust: around one in five young people in the UK are not in work, education or training. Youth unemployment costs the UK economy £10m a day in lost productivity, while youth crime costs £1bn every year.
We address this by giving practical and financial support to the young people who need it most. We help develop key skills, confidence and motivation, enabling young people to move into work, education or training. The Trust was established in 1976 and you can help support young people by helping us to continue our programmes that encourage young people to take responsibility for themselves – helping them build the life they choose rather than the one they’ve ended up with.
