We’re Turning Old Money into New Memories

On 14th October, Mikhaila and Eilish, two of the young people we support, will be going on the adventure of a lifetime to raise vital funding and awareness for Teens Unite.

They will be making the 330km journey from Vietnam to Cambodia in just six days as they form part of our overseas cycling team.

You can help them to support other young people who have been diagnosed with cancer, by donating your old £1 coins to Teens Unite as part of our new ‘Turn Old Money into New Memories’ campaign.

Eilish and Mikhaila have come a long way since their cancer diagnosis and are now both in remission.

During this time, the friends have attended many of our workshops and residential stays. Eilish said "I can't imagine my life without Teens Unite. From picking me up at my lowest to still supporting me now, allowing me to keep the friendships I made, which helped me to get my life back on track and build up my confidence once again.”

The money raised from challenges such as the Vietnam to Cambodia cycle will enable us to fund more workshops and activities for the young people we support, helping them to restore their confidence and self-esteem, learn new skills and make new friends; as can be seen with Eilish and Mikhaila.
