Personal Empowerment Students Donate To Yorkhill Charity
19th February 2015
Personal Empowerment Programme (PEP) students with their cheque to Yorkhill Charity
The students raised £214.94 over the Christmas period through activity books and Christmas decorations.
The PEP course aims to help students develop skills which can help them progress onto a vocational course at College or into employment.
Many sick children spend days, months and years attending Yorkhill Hospital, some with minor ailments and some fighting for their lives. Yorkhill Children's Charity sits firmly at the heart of the hospital and works tirelessly doing all that we can to make these difficult times easier for the children and their families, helping to give them the best chance of making a full recovery.
None of this would be possible were it not for the donors, fundraisers and volunteers who have enabled the charity to help support the hospital and related services over the past year. We are eternally grateful for your support and commitment in supporting Scotland's sick children... children that so rightly deserve the best care possible.
There are 18 paid members of staff in the charity office working within fundraising, administration and finance. Extensive use is made of volunteers, particularly in the gift shop and tea bar but also in the office, the can collection service and speaking to community groups.
