The current fund raising target is £5,000 and that will buy five months of therapy for a child that has been bullied
“Mark is making a fantastic contribution to science and to Barnardo’s with this completely unique fundraising challenge.
Even before COVID, screen time and anxiety were interfering with children and young people’s sleep, which can have serious consequences for their health and development. Throughout the pandemic children’s sleep has been further disrupted as they’ve dealt with the uncertainty of lockdown, being out of school and isolated from their friends and extended families.
We’re extremely grateful to our brilliant Ambassador Mark for everything he is doing to raise awareness of these vital issues, and his generous support for our charity. The money raised from his challenge will enable us to reach even more children and young people struggling during the pandemic and beyond. If you are in a position to donate, then please consider supporting our Children in Crisis Appeal through Mark’s attempt.”
