Challenge Wales has faced the issues that many charities across the UK have run into since coronavirus hit the country.
They explained: ''Due to COVID-19, mass participation fundraising events have been postponed or cancelled which has led to a huge drop in fundraising income for charities.
''Like many small charities, we are also not eligible for funding announced by the Government which is going to support front line charities.
''Challenge Wales though will be there after COVID-19 to help young people improve their mental health & wellbeing, develop their life skills and employability prospects through outdoor learning.''
