Blend 10 CakeAs part of marking the ten year anniversary milestone of Blend Youth Project, on Saturday June 24th, three members of the youth team will be taking part in the 'Peak District, Six-Dale Challenge' to raise funds in support of our ongoing work in providing activities, support services and alternative education opportunities for young people.

Web designer Paul Hickman is also taking part in the challenge. You can support his efforts on Just Giving.

Over the past ten years, more than 3000 young people have benefited from the support offered through Blend Youth Project. 

As one young person recently commented:

Happy Birthday Blend. I was in session number three and came to Blend for around 4 years afterwards. The first summer blend opened we practically lived there and it was probably the best summer of my life. The year after that I met some friends who became Brothers (we are one and always will be) thank you to Valley CiDS for all the hard work they did for me and my friends and the young people that attend now. 10 years of amazing work changing the lives of local young people very proud to have been part of it:)

The challenge will start in the small farming village of Biggin in Derbyshire.  From here we will trek through the 6 fantastic dales, Biggin Dale, Wolfscote Dale, Beresford Dale, Lathkill Dale, Bradford Dale and Long Dale, each dale offering its own different scenery.

This is a challenging event which covers 27 miles, takes in a variety of mixed terrain, and over 1000m of ascent.
