Club Charity – The Cambridge Acorn Project
As the second nominated charity was withdrawn, this charity was accepted as the BRJ Run and Tri Charity for 2021-2022, with Sarah Taylor-Hall taking on the position of Fundraising Officer. https://www.cambridgeacornproject.org.uk/
The Cambridge Acorn Project are a small charity working accross Cambridgeshire to support young people and families facing mental health difficulties. The charity does therapeutic work in the areas of stress, trauma, attachment and social justice. In Huntingdon, there is a current project in a nursery, working with a group of children that have been affected as a result of the covid pandemic. There is a further project working with children and young people together.
Matt Edge, C.O.O and therapeutic practitioner for Cambridge Acorn Project said “Thank you so much for having us as your charity of the year – I cannot tell you how much this means to us. We are still fairly new, and small, and so this is actually the first time anyone has done anything like this to this degree for us”.
Suffice to say, any support that BRJ Run and Tri can provide to The Cambridge Acorn Project will be well received and have a real impact on the children and families at need within our community.
Has lockdown had an impact on your mental health?
