Supporter Focus

We are really grateful to everyone who supports our work with local young people. This month we would like so send special thanks to the following supporters:

Chieveley Fete – for raising £527 for us at their event this year.
They say: “Keep up the good work, you are doing a great job!”

Hungerford Hares – fundraising from the Hungerford Harey 8 in June, along with match funding by Vodafone, has enabled us to buy a much-needed defibrillator for Waterside Centre.
They say: “We are delighted that the money has been able to buy such an important device for the community it will serve.”

Lifecycle Software – for their continued support, including recent staff raffle.
They say: “Our R&D team raised £300 for Berkshire Youth by doing a virtual raffle, drawn at our company meeting in July.  Prizes were wine from France, Amazon voucher, Bluetooth speaker, a Kalimba, Echo Dot, Lego friends set and more!”

Maxx Media – for sharing our messaging on the huge Reading Lights screens outside Reading Station.

Rotary Club of Easthampstead – for their ongoing commitment to and support of The Wayz, including their recent donation of £250 following the Bracknell Together Walk.

Rotary Club of Reading Abbey – for choosing us as the charity supported by their Englefield 10k event on Sunday 28 August.

Waitrose Newbury (pictured) – for their £600 cheque to support young people living in hardship to access the activities taking place at Waterside Centre.
