A group of teenagers from St Neots have been raising money for a charity which provides support and awareness for anyone aged under 35 who is struggling with thoughts of self-harm.

The youngsters, who are part of the National Citizens Service (NCS) scheme took part in a two-day event, which saw them complete a 34km walk around Grafham Water. They walked some of the distance on July 30, camped overnight at Top End Farm, near Grafham, and finished the walk the following day.

The group were able to obtain sponsorship for some of the items they needed, including t-shirts, rucksacks and kit.
