We are feeling Christmassy here at YCC and have several exciting Christmas Campaigns that members of the public can get involved with to help us raise funds for those that need our support over the festive period.
We are so excited this year to have our very own YCC Christmas Cards that were designed by Sam, a Year 11 student at Brian Jackson College. These are on sale NOW at Brian Jackson House and Jo Cox House.
Our Christmas Tree of Wishes is up at Brian Jackson House and companies can donate a personalised bauble for £50 which will then be proudly displayed on the tree.
Our Christmas Gift Appeal started in November, and we have already had several companies reach out to help us collect gifts. Members of the public can also get involved and this year we are the Huddersfield collection point for the JCI Secret Santa Appeal. All gifts donated will be given to families in Kirklees that need help this Christmas.
On Wednesday 14th December, members of staff at YCC will be celebrating Festive Jumper Day and having an internal festive lunch get together. There will be a hamper and raffle prizes available to win on the day.
Lynne Haigh, Fundraising Communications and Coordinator at YCC said “It has been extremely busy in the run up to Christmas and it is so exciting to have all the different ways for people to reach out and support YCC. We are pleased that, as a result, we will be able to support so many families and individuals during these difficult times.”
All proceeds raised from our Christmas Campaigns will go directly back to YCC and support disadvantaged children, young people and their families.
