We are delighted that YSS has been chosen by three local runners who recently completed the Worcester Half Marathon and 10k, raising £142.

Sarah Hannah, Maria Harris and Henna Chohan, who all work for Worcester based R & L Healthcare, chose to support YSS after finding out about the charity's work in supporting communities throughout West Mercia. Maria and Henna completed the Worcester City Half Marathon and Sarah completed the 10k race, raising £142 in sponsorship for YSS. All three women are new to running and these were their first competitive races. 

Sarah said: "As first timers for running at an event we found it great fun and extremely challenging at the same time. As a local health care company the R & L Healthcare team find it rewarding and vital to support local businesses and charities."

Catherine Kevis, YSS Chief Executive, said: "We're delighted that Sarah, Maria and Henna have chosen to support us and really appreciate all the effort that they put in to get sponsorship - not to mention all the training! Support from our communities means a great deal, and we're grateful to all those who fundraise on our behalf." 

YSS enables people who face significant life challenges to feel safe, have the opportunity to thrive and to realise their potential. We do this by delivering a wide range of community based support services for adults, young people and families throughout West Mercia (Shropshire, Herefordshire, Worcestershire and Telford & Wrekin).
