Thank you Lucy Gurr!

We’d like to say a huge “thank you” to the lovely Lucy Gurr, who has taken part in the Brooks Fleet Half Marathon and raised an estimated £120 for IYC through sponsorship!


We are so grateful to Lucy for the awareness and funds that she has raised through this personal challenge. We’re a small, grass-roots charity, so income raised by the local community is an essential part of enabling us to provide services to vulnerable young people across the New Forest.

Inspired by Lucy?

There are lots of fun ways to raise awareness and money for IYC. Why not set yourself a new challenge and sign up to participate in a local event?

Here are just a few of the local events you could take part in to raise money for IYC:
