The Scarborough News - - WELCOME TO YOUR NEWS -

Youth home­less­ness char­ity SASH have raised more than £13,500 to sup­port those who will be home­less this win­ter.

The money has been raised through the ‘The Big Give’, the UK’s big­gest on­line matched donor cam­paign which can match do­na­tions £ for £.

The char­ity’s aim was to raise £12,500 by De­cem­ber 4.

Thanks to an ini­tial do­na­tion of £3,125 from the Helm­s­ley Group, an ad­di­tional £3,125 pledged through char­i­ta­ble trust The Four Acres, and the sup­port of the lo­cal com­mu­nity, SASH has gone be­yond their tar­get and raised a to­tal of £13,550.50.

The money will be used to en­sure young peo­ple in North and East York­shire have a warm and safe place to stay in a vol­un­teer’s home; are able to ac­cess round the clock care over the fes­tive pe­riod and re­ceive a Christ­mas present and meal with the op­por­tu­nity to get in­volved in fes­tive ac­tiv­i­ties such as the panto and iceskat­ing.
