YSS is delighted to receive a donation from Hanley Castle High School, following a sponsored walk held by the school.

Pupils at Hanley Castle raised £426 from the walk, which took place by the clock tower in Malvern up to the Hills Beacon and then British Camp, finally ending at Holybush.  The walk was around eight miles in total and took a whole day to complete; around 500 students and 60 staff were involved.

The money has been donated to the YSS Discretionary Distress Fund, which supports people in the area who may need a variety of support, such as overnight shelter for someone living on the street, counselling for people experiencing stress, anxiety or depression or emergency food and clothing for a family in crisis.

Catherine Kevis, YSS Chief Executive, said: "We're so thrilled that the pupils and staff at Hanley Castle High School have chosen to support YSS. Our work is very much rooted in the community, and so for people to get behind us in this way really means a lot. A huge thank you to all the pupils and staff who were involved in the walk, and to all those who sponsored them!"

YSS delivers community based support services to adults, children and young people and families across Worcestershire, Herefordshire, Shropshire and Telford & Wrekin.
