During 2005 YMCA Drop-In Centre launched an appeal to local residents requesting their support of the valuable ongoing youth provision in the town by signing up to make regular donations to the Drop-In. There was an impressive response from the community and their regular donations give the organisation the benefit of being able to forward plan its finances throughout the year. If these funds are donated using the Government’s Gift Aid Scheme, the Drop-In is able to claim tax relief the tax paid by the donor on the donation, which further enhances the total received. We are very grateful from the community support and if you would like to join our supporter club please get in touch with us through the office. You will quarterly news letters so that you can hear about everything you are helping to support.
At Gatehouse of Fleet YMCA Drop-In Centre, we believe that providing a nurturing environment for our youth is essential to their overall development. Since 2000, we have impacted the lives of youth in the greater Gatehouse of Fleet area, and we couldn’t have done it without the generous contributions of our donors. Our children are the leaders of tomorrow and we are here to help them reach their fullest potential. Donate today, and make a world of difference in a child’s life.
