WAM’s 1000 Coffees Campaign

We’re on a mission to get 1000 people to support us with a regular weekly donation of just £2.50. That would consistently cover all our general running costs…..meaning that we could focus our fundraising efforts on things like minibuses, upgrading equipment, trips and special events and more importantly focus our time on what we’re really here to do….support local young people regardless of whether their school has budget for it or whether we can find a grant to run a group for them.

Too many decisions around care and support are based on budgets rather than need.

1000 people is 16% of the Winchcombe population (1.1/% of Tewkesbury Borough) & £2.50 is one takeout coffee….

Please think about whether you can help us with a donation of just £2.50 (or more!) per week. You can sign up here on our donate page or email us on info@wamyouth.org.uk if you are able to support us.
