The Smile Foundation raises £30,000 for XLP
A 40 strong team from The Smile Foundation, including staff members from Moonpig and Photobox, have supported XLP by tacking the National Three Peaks Challenge: 24 hours - Ben Nevis (4,409 feet), Scafell Pike (3,209 feet) and Mount Snowdon (3,560 feet)! The team were joined by a group of XLP staff members and young people. We’re incredibly grateful to all the participants and everyone who has donated to support them!

The Great Newham 10k
They did it! We had a fantastic team of staff and volunteers taking part in The Great Newham 10k on Sunday 17th July 2016! Many of these guys have not run this distance before, so it will be a real challenge! Please support them as they aim to raise valuable funds for XLP.

About XLP

XLP is about creating positive futures for young people growing up on deprived inner city estates, struggling daily with issues such as family breakdown, poverty, unemployment and educational failure, and living in areas that experience high levels of anti-social behaviour, criminality and gang activity. Every year XLP helps thousands of them recognise their full potential. We believe positive, consistent relationships can restore a young person’s trust in people, nurture the belief that things can change and encourage them to set positive goals and work hard to achieve them.
