We had a fantastic time on Sunday afternoon meeting lots of people in the community at the Mayfield and Easthouses Christmas Fayre. Several of our staff and young people were fundraising to raise funds for Y2K, with crafts made by our young people, tombola, cakes and more.
We raised over £300 on the day, and would like to give a huge thanks to the National Mining Museum, The Sun Inn, The Wheelhouse Cafe, Dean Tavern, Tesco Hardengreen, Edinburgh Butterfly and Insect World, Mayfield Leisure Centre for donating prizes for our tombola.
Thank you to all the Coop shoppers who chose Y2K as their ‘local cause’. Lisa from Coop Newtongrange was able to come and present a huge cheque for £2117.86 which was joyfully received by young people attending our Transitions group. They also loved the balloons.
The young people are coming up with ideas on how this money can best be used and passing these on to the staff. We are so grateful to the coop for all their support so we can continue providing opportunities and services for young people in our local area.
Thank you to everyone who came along to the girls’ Coffee and Cake afternoon for Children in Need on 17th November. This raised a fantastic £105 for BBC Children In Need, who have been one of our funders.
Come join us for Coffee & Cake for Children in Need
