This June I will be taking to the open road. Just messing, I will be channeling all our pent up lockdown energy into cycling 170km on an exercise bike. Why would you do such a thing Clodagh? Well because this year I had the privilege of working with teenagers through the pandemic and it was eye-opening. Teenagers had it tougher than most this year, they spend massive amounts of time inside, alone, away from their friends. Teenage years are usually all about doing daft stuff with your friends and hanging out and this was taken away. The results were striking and working with young people has shown me that, now more than ever, the work the Soar does is vital.
We are all missing connection, stumbling to find ways to reach out to friends and family whilst also caring for outselves. These are vital skills that Soar supports young people in developing. So I am going to cycle my little legs off for them. Please donate if you can, I would really appreciate it.
Thank you very much. Clo
