22nd May 2017, National Charity Launches West Cornwall Branch, 2 Forth Scol, Porthleven, TR13 9GA
A new mentoring organisation is inviting you to help them change the lives of young men in West Cornwall.

Backed by the national charity of the same name, A Band of Brothers (ABOB) Cornwall is a group of twenty adult men ready to support 18-25 year olds who are looking to turn things around around and lead more positive lives.

Caption: “The volunteers of ABOB Cornwall, ready to change the lives of young men in West Cornwall”

ABOB Cornwall currently recruiting for a programme called The Quest, which is a contemporary rites of passage experience that helps for young men successfully transition from adolescence to manhood. It is taking place over the weekend of June 9-11th near Helston.

“It’s a two-day intensive residential workshop that encourages the young men to find meaning, motivation and a sense of belonging,” said Cornwall group leader George Hardwick, of Porthleven. “The idea is for them to ask questions of themselves about their identity, sense of purpose and their direction in life. We know it works”.

ABOB Cornwall is the latest community to set up, following successes in Sussex, London and Oxford. More than 200 young men have been supported nationally, with a high success rate: working with young ex-offenders aged 18-25, ABOB’s unconventional approach has saved the tax-payer an estimated £5m and turned on its head the usual re-offending rate of 68% after a year, to just 20%, while helping 75% of those unemployed to find jobs.

“We’ve been building up to this for two years, so we’re well prepared,” said George. “The older men and mentors have had training, police checks and have met weekly for a year ‘to build a strong container’ for the young men,” he said.

With six young men already signed up for the Quest Weekend, ABOB Cornwall is now looking for more young men across West Cornwall who the programme could benefit.

Following the Quest weekend, each young man will meet weekly for three months with a mentor of their choice, as well as attending the weekly group meetings held by ABOB Cornwall. The chance to interact regularly with supportive adult men has a profound impact on the young men who take part.

Caption: “Young men are supported to find a new direction in life”
“Too many young men lack any kind of positive male role model in their lives, meaning they make poor choices,” explained George, “and it is both the young men themselves, and we as members of their communities, who bear the cost of those choices.”
So far the men of ABOB Cornwall have contributed in excess of 1500hrs of volunteer time in preparation for working with their first group of young men. They are inviting you to support them in this much needed work.

If you know of a young man aged 18-25 who could do with ABOB’s support, contact Young Men’s Coordinator Thurstan Crockett on 07890 743 259 email: thurstanc@hotmail.co.uk

The charity are also running an online fundraising auction. To pledge an auction item or make a bid, head to www.ABOBCornwall.org

7th May 2017, British Lung foundation/Zumbathon, 70 Trevithick Estate, St Merryn, PL28 8NN
24th April 2017
For Immediate Release


Local instructor, Jeanie Lloyd from St Merryn has organised a Zumbathon at Wadebridge leisure centre on 7th May 2017 to fundraise for the British Lung Foundation, the only UK charity working for the 1 in 5 people affected by respiratory disease. Jeanie is calling on local residents to support and take part in the event or sponsor someone they know taking part and help in their efforts in to raise funds for the charity.

Jeanie says: “I was diagnosed with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease 4 years ago. It was a huge shock at the time and I have been determined to not let this stop me from keeping active, which is one of the best things I can do now for my health. Running a Zumbathon is the perfect way to raise awareness of lung disease. It is a two hour challenge to get down to some really great tunes, and enjoy yourself whilst keeping fit. It should really demonstrate what we can all achieve and the impact exercise can have on our physical and emotional health. I’m really keen to raise as much money as possible for the British Lung Foundation and would really welcome sponsorship and participation from local people.”

The event to be held in Wadebridge has attracted the support of nine local Zumba instructors, all of whom are keen to show their support and give a flavour of what they can do. So far, more than 50 locals have got tickets and there is plenty of space for more to join in. Tickets can be obtained from via Zumba.com or purchased on the door with all money raised going to the British Lung Foundation.

Katie Lyall, Events Manager at the British Lung Foundation says: “We are delighted that Jeanie will be holding a Zumbathon to support the British Lung Foundation. Every contribution makes a difference and funds raised will go towards ensuring that we can continue to offer vital support for people with lung disease, as well as their partners, families and friends.”

To take part in the Zumbathon or find out more please visit her event page at https://www.zumba.com/en-US/event/view/zumbathon-charity-event-british-lung-foundation-copd.
