The Liquid Youth Group is hoping to raise £1,500 for the drug and alcohol rehabilitation charity Focus 12 on Saturday with a 12 mile walk from Hardwick Heath.

The group based at Southgate Church, Bury St Edmunds, decided to do the walk after a former addict visited to tell them how Focus 12’s total abstinence programme helped him.

The walkers setting off from Hardwick Heath are aged between 14 and 17 .

Their youth leader Alison Burgess said they were committed to helping support the work done by Bury based Focus 12, which pledges to get people off drink and drugs completely and to stay abstinent.

Donations can be made to help the youngsters to their target at Just Giving website
