Please Donate Now to Help Clevedon YMCA

Clevedon YMCA is an independent part of the International YMCA movement.  We have been active in Clevedon since the 1874, particularly during World War I.  The current building was built and dedicated in 1929 with the funds raised by public subscription.

In 2019 we celebrated the 90th Anniversary of our current building on Marson Road. In 2020 we are facing an unprecedented crisis for this generation.  The young people and the vulnerable adults who we support need our help more than ever as they face ‘normal’ life being curtailed and for some seemingly endless months of isolation.

It costs less than £100,000 a year to keep Clevedon YMCA ticking over.  This includes everything we do – free youth clubs five days a week, mental health support and mentoring together with our Y Wednesday Club.

We try as much as possible to offer paid work to young people and take any opportunities offered to us to help young people as they start out through their working lives.

Please help us to continue this good work by making a donation today, or by organising a fundraising activity for Clevedon YMCA.

You can donate directly into our account at the HSBC bank on the Triangle in Clevedon.

Established in 1958, the Garfield Weston Foundation is a family-founded charitable grant-making trust which now gives away approximately £80 million a year to charities across the UK. Having established one of the most respected charitable institutions in the UK, the Weston Family Trustees today remain highly active and hands-on. The Foundation’s funding comes from an endowment of shares in the family business – a successful model that still endures today and as the businesses have grown so too have the charitable donations.

Each year the Foundation gives away its income and donations have continued to grow. Since it was established it has donated over £1 billion, of which over half has been given away in the past ten years alone. In the most recent financial year the Foundation gave away over £79 million to over 2,100 charities across the UK.
