I took part in the Isle of Wight Challenge in April walking 106 km continuously around the perimeter of the island.
I completed this is 21 hrs and raised over £1,100 for the Havant youth club. I really like Motiv8, the support they provide young people and their families is so valuable. 
Growing up locally in Gosport I can relate to some of the difficulties the children face at home and in education. I have seen first hand just how positive and impactful Motiv8 services are for young people volunteering at the youth club.
I look forward to continuing to support Motiv8 in the future.
