Humber Night Challenge

In March Julie Good took part in the Humber Night Challenge, a 12 mile walk in the dark across East Yorkshire countryside, organised by the Tribune Trust. The Tribune Trust supports projects which promote good citizenship and safer communities, protect the vulnerable, tackle drug and alcohol abuse and promote sport as a healthy alternative to drugs and crime. 120 young people, many of whom are on the cusp of offending, take part in the Challenge. They go out in teams of 5 with 2 trained volunteers per team and along the way undertake challenges set by the Police, Fire and Rescue, the Coastguard and the Environment Agency as
reading the map to follow the route. The weather made it even more of a challenge this year as it rained and sleeted all night! Julie raised over £2000 in sponsorship to undertake the Night Challenge herself and the Foundation match funded her with £1000.
