On Sunday, 14th October 2017 YPCS formed its first every running team to run the Perkins Great Eastern Half Marathon & 5km Fun Run. The weather was torrential rain for the entire event but despite the challenging conditions, everyone completed their run.
Supported by Equiniti Plc, who provided the running shirts, the team has already raised over £5,000 which is an incredible amount that allows YPCS to counsel another 13 young people during 2018.
A massive thank you to everyone who took part in the event & to Equiniti Plc for their support.
Firewalking is an ancient ritual that has existed for thousands of years in many cultures around the world. As a demonstration of courage and faith it has traditionally symbolised an acolyte’s ability to conquer both inner doubt and a primordial fear of the destructive power of the flames.
In 2018 YPCS invites the brave to take the challenge and raise money for young people at Stilton’s famous Talbot Inn. This friendly village pub, once home to the rituals of Stilton’s Ancient Order of Foresters will host the fiery spectacle on the 20th October.
Participants will take a barefoot walk over red-hot embers measuring around 800 degrees and younger guests and pyrophobes will be able to walk a virtual firewalk created by Young Technicians CIC.
Spectators will be treated to a stunning fire show by Kitty Devereux, a performer who has entertained crowds at some of the UK’s biggest festivals.
Good Luck to everyone cycling 54 miles from the Letter B Pub in Whittlesey to Heacham on 14th July to raise money for @YPCS10 and other local charities. A massive thank you and best of luck to all riders taking part from all our Volunteers and Trustees at YPCS.
The Letter B Public House is one of the Town’s best known Public Houses for live music and quizzes. It hosts two Bars with an excellent choice of real ales and real ciders in both.
