CYT big fundraiser

CYT is celebrating it's 30th Anniversary with a big fundraising drive. We had our 30th Anniversary White Pearl Ball on Saturday 28th December at Wolverhampton Racecourse. These are just some of the things we are doing to raise money to secure the future of CYT for the next decade! Help us if you can by Donating! You can use the donate button on the bottom right of the page. On Friday, 18th October, we held a fun family quiz night at West End Working Men's Club, Wolverhampton. On Sunday, 27th October, our volunteers bag packed at the big Tesco store at Burnt Tree Island, Dudley, to raise £1,190. The Sunday before (20th October) former members Joe Hancock (2 hours 10minutes) and Celeste Dring (1 hour 56 minutes) completed the Birmingham Half-Marathon to raise £1,000 - but beat that target to raise nearly £1,500 up to now (still open for donations).
