The Lucky Break Road Tour
23rd Jan 2013
Adviza staff and volunteers are participating in an exciting new challenge to raise funds for the Lucky Break Mentoring Project. The 'Lucky Break Road Tour' takes place from 2nd to 5th April 2013. Staff will be traversing the Thames Valley relying on nothing more than leg power and honest endeavour! Some will be walking, some will be running and some will be cycling but all will be raising money for the Lucky Break Mentoring Programme.
The route goes from our support centre in Bracknell, through Wokingham and Reading to Newbury, up to Oxford via Abingdon and then over to Aylesbury and High Wycombe. The route culminates in the final leg from Slough to Bracknell. The route takes in all of Adviza's offices and different stages are being completed by staff by foot or by bike.
Lucky Break helps vulnerable and at-risk young people into work and learning. The programme sets out to match young people with carefully selected and trained volunteer mentors from the local community. The mentor acts as a positive role-model for the young person, increasing their self-confidence, raising their aspirations and empowering them to be the best they can be.
Katharine Horler, Adviza's Chief Executive, said of the event: "Staff wanted to do something themselves to help fund this great project. So many of our staff and volunteers have wanted to get involved - those that aren't walking, running or cycling are helping with the fundraising! It looks like being a great week."
