It has been so great working with you this year and so many exciting projects and activities have taken place. Thank you for being part of Ykids and making it such a great place to be.
Unfortunately, we have some sad news. As you know Ykids is a charity and must fund raise to provide all our activities and events. Like so many, it has been a very difficult year financially and we have not been able to raise all the necessary funds to keep on all our staff into next year. This means that from January we will be saying goodbye to some of our wonderful team. Ali, Joy, and Abi will be moving to pastures new and we are sorry to lose them. We think they are amazing and will be greatly missed. Nikki and Matt will no longer be full time in the office, but you will hopefully see them around at projects as sessional workers.
We will be moving forward with a smaller team so may not be able to offer as many projects as we have been for a little while. We will be back in January and as usual we will start groups towards the end of the month with a few events before that. We are looking at some new ways to move forward developing new and exciting partnerships that mean we will be able to offer a Drama Project, Horrid History of Bootle Project and a wigathon with Wigzeewoo! These and more details to follow!
In the meantime, we value your ideas and support. Please let us know if and how Ykids makes a difference to you – it helps us when speaking to funders.
Thank you for your continued support. Have a great Christmas and we will see you in the new year!
The Ykids Team
