The team from Paddy Power Betfair held a recent charity auction in aid of YGAM and raised an amazing £6,280.
Lee Willows, Chief Executive YGAM said ‘Wow this is superb and being a start-up organisation, this donation will make a huge difference. In discussions with the team at Paddy Power we would like to put this donation towards the on-going development of our educational resources aimed at young people aged between 18 – 25yrs. Our education programmes are popular and learning from the experience of actual delivery over the past three years, plus the scrutiny from our quality-assurance partners (i.e. Pearson, PSHE Association and ASDAN) we are working to further strengthen the robustness and relevance by having a mix of paper based and new digitalised resources.’
Aimée Horwood, Public Affairs Advisor, Paddy Power Betfair said ‘Paddy Power Betfair have been supporters of YGAM for two years now and we are keen to help them with further with their fundraising efforts this year. I am delighted that our team have got behind their cause and that we have been able to raise this money for their charity from our auction. Being a small charity, we know this contribution will make a difference for them and that we will be able to see exactly where the donation will be spent. Our teams support many charities across the United Kingdom and we love being able to make a difference’.
