A YOUTH charity aims to send disadvantaged children on an adventure holiday.

The Youth Hostels Association (YHA) is appealing for donations for its new venture.

Project 90 will allow vulnerable young people from West Sussex to experience a two-night adventure-packed holiday at one of its youth hostels.

Charlie Simpson, head of fundraising at YHA, said: “We know that getting out of your comfort zone, being physically active and being outdoors all have hugely positive effects on physical and mental wellbeing, which is exactly what young people living challenging lives need.

“Project90 will allow us to reach those young people in the area who are most in need, but we can only achieve our ambition if people donate.”
