YPI winners attend London celebration

Last Tuesday, as the winners of this year’s Block 4 Youth & Philanthropy Initiative, we were lucky enough to go to London for a winner’s celebratory lunch and presentation event. We had chosen to support Stonepillow, a Chichester based charity which aids the homeless. After visiting them, delivering numerous donations, making a film and writing a song, we were presented with a £3000 cheque on behalf of the charity. Our determination and hard work was really rewarded on this special occasion. There were so many inspirational and amazing people who we felt privileged to have listened to, especially a nine year old girl affected by AVM, who had received a donation for her charity; it really showed the incredible difference that YPI makes to people’s lives. Although no prizes were given to Bedales it amazed us to see what we were capable of achieving when we put our minds to it. View photos.
