Young Adult Carer Charlotte gears up for a triple challenge for GYC!

On July 8th Charlotte who is 20, will push herself physically and mentally in the stunning but challenging surroundings of Snowdonia to raise money for our charity.

Ahead of her epic adventure organised by providers Charity Challenge Charlotte said –
”This will involve me pushing my own limits and participating in a triple challenge series across one of the UK’s most rugged landscapes. I will be tackling all terrains as I cycle, trek and kayak in just one day in the heart of Snowdonia.”

The challenge itself is:

  • 9 mile trek
  • 10.5 mile cycle
  • 2.5 mile kayak

“Gloucestershire Young Carers are an extremely important charity to me because they have continuously provided me with support and have helped and shaped me into the person I am today.

In my personal experience, Gloucestershire Young Carers have supported me immensely throughout my academic journey. Not only have they helped me alongside coursework and exams, but they have also provided me with life- long connections in my legal career- some who I am in contact with still, today! Everyone at Gloucestershire Young Carers is so dedicated to each individual and they so passionately want the best for each carer, and it shows through how much time and support they spend with each individual.

I want Gloucestershire Young Carers to feel the love that they have given to all of us carers, and, by doing this challenge, I hope to give back just as much as they have given me!”

We wish you the very best of luck Charlotte and can’t wait to follow your journey! If you would like to support Charlotte, you can visit her fundraising page here
