At our annual boat party, we'll be holding an auction in aid of our Charity of the Year. The YF Aspiration Fund seeks to raise funds for the year 6 pupils of families with no recourse to public funds to support the expensive transition to secondary school. We've teamed up with local charity, NOPA, to ensure no child is left behind.
Roisin Kelly & Ria Bernard have been busy reaching out to local businesses and organisations, who have kindly offered us an array of fantastic donations.
Take a sneak peak below so you're set to make your bids at the YF Auction on board!
