More about the Changing Young Lives Appeal-
The Changing Young Lives appeal began back in 2012 when YMCA Fylde Coast undertook the task to turn around the fortunes of YMCA Lakeside on the shores of Lake Windermere. In earlier years this had been one of the foremost outdoor education centres. Requiring modernisation and innovation they put in place a daunting yet exciting plan to raise £6.8 million to build a new Youth Groups and Schools facility to replace the South Camp.
Over time an active sub-committee and the YMCA has gained support from philanthropists and funders. Their generosity has brought the YMCA to a position where only £50,000 needs to be raised to reach the final target. However, this remains a challenge as the final amount is required by the end of September.
2019 is the YMCA’s landmark 175th anniversary year. Founded in 1844, the YMCA has become the world’s largest and oldest youth movement. The YMCA is now operating in 119 countries, with 64 million people reached annually around the world.
