YMCA: Our chosen charity of the year
We are delighted to announce a partnership with YMCA MK as our official charity of the year. We’re also excited to announce a three-way partnership involving the MK Festival of Running for 2020.
With YMCA MK currently in the middle of the redevelopment of its new campus, which is due to open in early 2020, the partnership with Xscape will help raise awareness and the much needed funds for the fit out of 199 rooms that will help the charity support its young people with affordable accommodation and a dedicated pathway of support, including well-being, training and employment opportunities.
We have supported the MK Festival of Running for over 10 years and in announcing this three-way partnership between ourselves, the event and the charity – it’s hoped the profile of the YMCA MK project can get a greater reach and an increased level of support.
The MK Festival of Running takes place on 15 March 2020 and organisers have already set up a donation link on their website for entrants to make a voluntary contribution to YMCA MK when they sign up.
We will also have collection buckets for YMCA: MK at our annual free Santa’s Grotto this Christmas which will open in November.
