Fundraising for Young Bristol was a real privilege. What’s more, as soon as I explained to people what the charity does, and how it does it, they immediately “got it” and could see how their financial support would make a real difference in a real community.” Erik, London Marathon runner

I have really enjoyed fundraising because of the work Young Bristol does.” Angad, Bath Half Marathon runner
