£3260 already raised for WWMT

Thanks to those who donated £1 or more at the point of sign up for the Dartmoor Classic, we have raised a fantastic £3,260 for the Trust. But there is still lots more we can do to help!

We’re proud to be supporting the William Wates Memorial Trust as our Charity of the Year 2020/21. Thanks to those who donated £1 or more at the point of sign up for the Dartmoor Classic, we have raised a fantastic £3,260 for the Trust. This has helped them to continue to support some of the most disadvantaged young people in the UK, helping to keep them away from a life of crime and violence and fulfil their potential. They achieve this by giving grant to charities that engage young people through the mediums of sport, arts and education.

THANK YOU to all those who have already donated. But let’s not stop there. These are desperate times for charities and in particular those working with youth. Together we can make a real difference to young, damaged lives. It’s simple. Use your Dartmoor Classic ride to help us fundraise for WWMT. Make it count.

The WWMT gives grants to charities working with youth, using the ‘hooks’ of sports, education, and the arts to engage with them and help them to turn their lives around. One such project is the superb Youth Adventure Trust (YAT) here in the South West:

“We use outdoor adventure to empower young people to fulfil their potential and lead positive lives in the future. We work with them to build resilience, develop confidence and learn skills that will last a lifetime, helping them to face the challenge in their lives”.

Another great example of the diverse types of work done by the WWMT is Project Livewire, based in Saltash. Livewire supports local youngsters through music and traditional youth work, helping steer them through the trials and tribulations of growing up. Never has this service been more needed. Read some of their success stories from the link below, then share them with your potential donors.
