SASH is a local Charity to support homeless young people aged 16-19 that for whatever reason have no home. They are isolated and lonely and the gym sponsorship donated by the Rob Stephenson Trust helps them get out and meet people and also to help overcome mental health issues.
Here are some quotes from some of the young people who benefit from this fabulous charity:
Young person 1 – He has been participating the longest:
“It gets me out of the house and helped to give me confidence. I like going and testing myself. It helps to make me feel better about myself.”
Young Person 2:
“I struggle with lots of things. I thought I wouldn’t be able to go to the gym on my own. It is helping me to feel better about who I am.”
Young Person 3:
“I feel like I’ve achieved something and it makes me feel better.”
