Pictures from our allotment open day. John can be seen showing David Chapman (one of our volunteers) around our plot, as well as lots of pictures of our produce and beautiful flowers.
We are delighted to have won the cup for best overall plot - we will receive the cup at the September prize giving buffet evening.
John and Patsy were invited to the Thatcham Mayor making ceremony on Sunday.
Ellen Crumbly was voted in as the Mayor for a second year. Each year the Mayor chooses two charities as her charities for the year. All fund raising events she attends over the year and the money raised at these events is shared between her two charities at the end of the year.
We are very lucky and happy to say that Ellen has chosen our charity to be one of her charities of this year....
This invite to the Queen's garden party is a thank you for all that YPACF do and have done to help young people here in West Berkshire.
We want to say a big thank you to everyone who continues to support us, we can only do what we do as a charity because of the support we get from all of you.
We're nominated again for the Queen’s Award for the Voluntary Service 2016 - everything crossed for 2 June!
Patsy and John, as well as our patron Gill, received an award from James Puxley, the Lord Lieutenant of Berkshire, last week to commemorate the achievement in being nominated for the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service 2016. What an honour again to be nominated. We are so pleased that Young People and Children First and our wonderful bunch of volunteers are recognised; and we are keeping our fingers and toes tightly crossed until 2nd June (The Queen’s birthday) when the winner of the award gets announced.
Please join us in keeping everything crossed. We appreciate all your support.
The results come out on June 2nd, the Queens official Birthday, so we are keeping our fingers crossed. We are however very proud to have been nominated again and give a massive thank you to all of our volunteers who make this nomination possible.
In recognition of us being nominated for this prestigious award, we've been invited to a reception with the Lord Lieutenant of Berkshire, Mr James Puxley. This will be held on the 18 March and we'll be presented with a certificate so watch this space for an update next month.
