This year Bloodstock welcomes a brand new charity partner! Say hello to the very worthy YoungMinds organisation (https://youngminds.org.uk), who work tirelessly to support young people’s mental health across the UK. YoungMinds will benefit from our guest list donation scheme and have a stand in the arena for you to drop by, drop a quid in their collection box and find out about their work. YoungMinds is the leading the fight for a future where all young minds are supported and empowered, whatever the challenges. They help to ensure the best possible mental health support for our youth and help them have the resilience to overcome life’s difficulties. The crisis in young people’s mental health is real and it is urgent. More than ever before are reaching out for help with their mental health, but for those brave enough to take that first step, help is much too hard to find. YoungMinds are helping to change this. Click through to their website to read more about what they do and look out for them onsite at Catton Park!
