The British Youth Council is thrilled to share the success of our recent fundraising event, The Big Leap. The challenge took place on April 1st, 2023, and involved brave fundraisers bungee jumping from 300ft at Tatton Park in Manchester.
Thanks to the generosity and support of our amazing fundraisers, we have raised a phenomenal £1,566 for our cause, including gift aid. The money raised from The Big Leap will go a long way in helping us deliver projects and programmes to tackle the impact of the cost of living on youth mental health. This is an issue that affects many young people across the UK and was a debate topic at 2022’s UK Youth Parliament House of Commons sitting.
We would like to express our gratitude to all those who supported The Big Leap. From our gravity defying fundraisers for their bravery and commitment to our mission, to those who donated from afar. Your support has helped us smash our fundraising goal and will enable us to continue making a positive impact on the lives of young people as a result.
Thank you once again to everyone who made The Big Leap such a tremendous success!
