There is further good news from the Sandbach YCW IMPACT Group’s efforts to raise enough money for a refugee sponsorship in their local parish.
A few weeks ago the YCW National Training and Development Worker, Marc Besford, visited the Group to get an update and was told they had raised the full amount needed - £12,000 - after several fundraising efforts organised by the young leaders and the parish.
The Group have been raising money since last year to aid efforts for a Parish refugee sponsorship scheme, initiated by the Group. Not only have they been raising money but they have organised the rental of a house, collected furniture, helped with DIY, tidied up the garden and recruited volunteers.
The parish is now waiting on the family to arrive and are planning various welcome activities.
To build upon this amazing example, the young leaders are now looking at other issues through the YCW method of SEE-JUDGE-ACT and we hope to hear about more inspiring actions in the near future.
