Community Rallies Behind Local Charity After Minibus Theft: Join the Urgent Fundraiser

For the second time in a year, the heart-breaking news has struck Youth Options – one of their minibuses has been stolen.

This event has a catastrophic impact on the charity’s ability to provide support to children and young people in the county. The charity’s staff had hoped for the stolen vehicle to be returned, but that hasn’t happened, and the search for the missing minibus has yielded no results.

This is where they need your help. The charity has launched a flash appeal to raise funds for a new bus, as well as the cost of hiring temporary transportation to ensure the work continues. Your donations can help change lives. Donate here.

The charity works tirelessly to support young people in the community and offer sessions, activities, and new opportunities. The contributions from supporters like you allow the charity to offer further support to young people in need. Over the past year alone, the charity has provided support to over 5,000 young people, engaged nearly 2,000 with outdoor learning, helped 45 families with non-violent resistant training and assisted 70 young people with completion of a certification or accreditation.

The loss of the minibus poses a great threat to the charity’s ability to continue providing their services. Your contribution can help alleviate this threat and ensure that the charity can continue their vital work to support children and young people in the community.

Your donation can make a difference in various ways. It can help pay for youth workers to work with children and young people to turn their lives around, pay for a food parcel for a care leaver, or buy activity packs for young children. Every little bit helps.

Together, we can make a significant impact and help the charity continue their life-changing work.
