Due to the current circumstances the youth have missed out on many of their usual fundraising opportunities that help them pay for the activities and events throughout the year. The breakfast café at the Region meet goes a long way to helping them raise the funds which they need. As they missed out on that opportunity this year, the next time you cook yourself a bacon roll or whatever takes your fancy, if you can, how about helping the youth by donating £1 towards their funds. I’m sure donations larger than £1 will be gratefully accepted if you are feeling flush!!! They have set themselves a target of £500 and are working on other ideas to raise funds. Here is a link to a Just Giving page where you can safely make your donation:
When Youth events are organised, the Youth funds do try and help subsidise events so we do appreciate all your help with fundraising and hope you have all registered with Easy fundraising and persuaded all your friends and family to join as well. This is a very easy way to raise money for Youth Funds. All you need to do is log onto http://www.easyfundraising.org.uk and follow the Scottish Region Youth.
