We’d like to thank the Academy of Chief Executives for their massive support over the last year.

The Academy has given complementary membership to our Chief Executive Tracy Gollins and offered her support, networking opportunities, coaching and friendship. The charity has benefited enormously from this blossoming relationship; with fundraising and personal donations being received from Academy members, amongst a whole host of generous contributions to YWCA Yorkshire.

YWCA gets into the Christmas spirit by taking 18 families to the pantomime

This week we managed to secure 64 tickets to take a large number of families to the pantomime at the CAST Theatre in Doncaster. We’d like to thank the Family Holiday Association as without their generosity, none of this would have been possible.

 

Bummit Event

BUMMIT is part of the University’s RAG (Raising and Giving) society, which raises money for local and international charities every year. BUMMIT is a hitchhiking adventure, where participants travel to a specific destination by hitchhiking or “bumming” lifts – hence the name! Established as a one-off trip in 2003, the event has grown every year and is now internationally recognised. Participants are permitted to use public transport, but the spirit of the event is to get lifts from drivers on their way. All the students taking part wear a bright coloured hoodie with details on, and travel in small groups. Each student is expected to raise a minimum of £250 sponsorship.

 

Different But Equal Event

On Thursday 27th July, two of our lovely staff members from Rotherham Services attended the Different But Equal event at the Carlton Park Hotel. Beci from the Early Help Team, and Lisa from YPTS, attended the event, which had been organised by the Different But Equal Board, in partnership with the Voice and Influence Partnership and Rotherham Children, Young People and Families’ Consortium.
