Thangam Debbonaire MP for Bristol West is running the London Marathon on 28th April and raising money for BDP's Youth Groups.

Coming to my youth group makes me feel happy 'cause I can make new friends and meet new people.

Our youth groups are an opportunity for children affected by their parents' alcohol or drug use to get out for the evening and have some fun with other young people. At this week's youth group for children aged 5 – 10 years-old, we asked the children to write down what their youth group means to them, so we could share it with people sponsoring Thangam.

You can make and meet new people and be their friends and you will never be left out and they are all kind and caring and its an opportunity to meet new people.
