Triple challenge for teens at Bridgwater Docks

Bridgwater Mercury: Triple challenge for teens at Bridgwater Docks Triple challenge for teens at Bridgwater Docks

THESE teenagers from Somerset County Council’s project Young People Somerset took part in a TriChallenge to raise money for two charities.

The youngsters began their challenge at Bridgwater Docks, paddling down the canal to the town’s YMCA – one of the chosen charities – before climbing onto their bikes.

They then rode to Maunsel House where they were greeted by owner Sir Benjamin Slade and given a guided tour of the property.

Next up was a bike ride to Bathpool and back, before completing the last phase of the challenge back to Bridgwater on foot.

As well as the YMCA, the challenge was completed on behalf of the Bridgwater-based Headway charity.

Alison Mills, of Headway, said: “It’s great to see young people take part in a totally new challenge and we all had a fun time getting involved.

“We don’t know how much has been raised yet but they have helped raise awareness of both Headway and the wonderful facilities at the YMCA.”

It was a wonderful day and the young people involved should be proud of what they achieved as they were a credit to themselves and a fantastic example to others.
It is nice to read something positive about young people rather than the negative that seems to be the norm.
Well done to all :)

Its just a shame the Mercury didn't bother letting us know this was happening beforehand so we could have supported them on their way!
