Thank you to our local Derbyshire Army Cadet Force for raising £1000!
Our local Derbyshire Army Cadet Force D Company have been fundraising for Safe and Sound this past year and have raised a fantastic £1000 which we were presented with yesterday at their Spring ’19 skills day at the Sinfin centre.
Working with hundreds of local teenagers, the Army Cadet leaders have first hand experience of some of the vulnerabilities faced by young people. The Officer Commanding D Company, Major Rob Palfreyman from Derbyshire ACF (Mercian) explained how Safe and Sound had delivered an awareness session for team leaders back in 2017 and knew how relevant the issues were to some of the young people they may be in contact with and decided to put forward the charity as their chosen Charity of the Year for 2018.
They have spent the last year raising money through various tasks and forfeits and way exceeded their target!
This amount of money could help to support a young person in Derbyshire over a number of months to move to safety following sexual abuse, working on a one-to-one basis with one of our specialist support workers.
