YMCA Burton launches Easter Campaign

YMCA Burton have launched their annual Easter fundraising campaign this week in a bid to raise £6,000 to refurbish the kitchen at their main homeless site Reconnect in the town centre.

This will enable them to increase the provision available, provide better facilities for clients and hopefully offer more opportunities for clients & volunteers to be involved in.
