Surrey Hills Society and Amber Foundation

On Sunday 9th June, The Amber Foundation held its Hike on the Hill tackling Box Hill as part of a stunning 10km route while fundraising for Amber’s work.  Christa Emmett, our Project and Volunteer Manager, organised the route and led the group.

Amber supports young adults (aged 18-30) facing complex problems and offer homeless support to transform their lives by helping them move away from homelessness, out of unemployment and work towards better, brighter and healthier futures.  Amber have four centres and their third centre is Farm Place which opened in April 2010.  Near Horsham and Dorking, Farm Place enjoys a parkland setting in 9 acres of grounds in the Surrey Weald.

Together they have fundraised a bed space at Farm Place for a young homeless person to transform their life.  The group covered around 12km, 16,000 steps, equivalent to 63 flights of stairs and raised (so far!) £5,670 towards a bed space and thank everyone for their support and kindness.  Louise Cheung, Fundraising Manager for Amber.
