A life-changing summer
In the summer of 2012, the Annington Trust joined forces with The Outward Bound Trust® to launch the Annington Challenge. Designed specifically for Service youngsters living on the Married Quarters Estate, the Annington Challenge aimed to provide these youngsters with the opportunity to experience their very own outward bound adventure and gain valuable life-skills in the process.
For many in that inaugural group, participating in the Annington Challenge proved to be a turning point. They were taken out of their comfort zone and tested physically and mentally. Drawing on reserves of self-belief that they didn’t know they had, they found the strength – and in some cases the courage – to tackle a range of activities designed to challenge.
