In May, it was announced that The Island York had been chosen as one of the Lord Mayor of York’s charities of the year. We are over the moon to have been selected and we’re enjoying being part of their fundraising activities. The Lord Mayor and his team are aiming to raise £75,000 which will be split between his three chosen charities.
If we were fortunate enough to receive a third of this amount (£25,000), then this would mean that our Weekly Group Sessions will be able to run for five years! As a small local charity, £25,000 is a lot of money to us. This money will allow us to be able to support approx 1,000 children over a five year period, who access our Group Sessions to improve their mental, emotional and social well-being.
There are many ways in which you are able to support the Lord Mayor of York’s charitable efforts. The first is to send a text GIVE to 70145 to donate £3
