Following the huge success of the first Mayor’s Community Weekend last year, communities across the West Midlands are being given double the cash to host celebrations this summer. This is thanks to a partnership between the West Midlands Combined Authority and The National Lottery Community Fund, the largest funder of community activity in the UK. 

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.
