KEEP ACTIVE 4 BARNET
We’ve launched #KeepActive4Barnet, a fundraising campaign raising funds to support our most vulnerable young people.
43% of young people in Barnet feel their long-term mental health and wellbeing has been affected and that 38% feel less secure than before the pandemic. Back in May 2020 it was reported* that over half of the children in Barnet were doing less physical activity than before lockdown, this percentage is likely to have risen since then (*source: Children and Young People’s Online Survey – Barnet Children’s Service)
Young Barnet is leading the charge to address this with #KeepActive4Barnet, a campaign giving young people and their families the opportunity to get active and raise money at the same time. Take a look at our Fundraising Support Pack
Some ideas include committing to going for a walk/run/cycle every day for a month, travelling the equivalent length of Barnet (from the Battle of Barnet monument in the north to Cricklewood station in the south = 9 miles or 19,000 steps), completing the number of steps equivalent to the population of Barnet – 402,000 or perhaps a swimathon, danceathon, marathon, fitness class, sports tournament… even a catch-a-ball-athon!
Fundraising for us can be as simple or as elaborate as you like. Whether you raise £5, £50 or £500, every penny will help us to support the children and young people of Barnet.
All the funds raised will support Young Barnet Foundation’s work to invest in children and young people, ensuring that they have opportunities for fun, growth, connection, success and celebration - helping today’s children become tomorrow’s confident, successful adults.
