Lorraine and Karen collected a cheque for £325 from Newbury Waitrose last week, from the Community Matters token scheme we were involved in. A massive thank you to everyone who chose our charity...
John and Patsy received a cheque for £400 from Marysia at Newbury Waitrose yesterday, this is great and will go towards helping us to support the young people in Cornerstone and also to help to get Rebecca house finished sooner so we can help more homeless young people. - Thank you Waitrose!
Waitrose have once again been a great help to our charity... John and Patsy received a cheque from Claire Young at Waitrose in Wokingham for £440 on Friday. This is great and will go towards supporting the young people and helping us finish our second house which is nearly ready.
Thank you to Waitrose Thatcham and all Waitrose customers that voted for our charity to receive a donation of £604 from Community Matters. This will help us to support the young people at our charity and is very much appreciated by everyone at YPACF.
We raised an amazing £1,062.63 this weekend at Waitrose. All the money we raised will go towards housing the 22 year old homeless young man who we are fundraising for.
In the pictures above are just some of the lovely people who donated. Mr Isaacson with a cheque for £50 and Mr and Mrs Taylor who gave a cheque for £500.
We want to say massive thank you to everyone who came and donated at the weekend. The young man who we are raising the money to support, was in tears when he heard how people cared enough to give money. He didn't think anyone would give anything.
We are going to be at Waitrose in Newbury on Saturday and Sunday this weekend. John and Patsy will be there with our collection buckets and leaflets on the charity, which show what we offer to the young people we support.
All money we collect will go directly to supporting and housing a 22 year old young man who we are fundraising for. He is currently homeless and living rough in a tent, and has been for over 10 months now.
Come see us to have a chat, donate or just see how we are getting on.
