4YP is a charity. We provide services to local young people for free. However, 4YP receives no funding direct from central government, which means we are extremely grateful for all the fundraising of our supporters.

Help with a CollectionYou can get involved in a number of ways, giving as little or as much time as you please. It's all valuable to 4YP and makes a big difference to the wellbeing of young people.

Below we offer an introduction to fundraising. If you would like to know more, or have any questions, please contact Karl on 01473 252607 or by emailing

Plan a Fundraiser

Do you have a passion?  Maybe singing, dancing, baking, cycling...

Almost anything you like to do can be a fundraiser. Maybe you could give a performance for donations? Or hold a competition?  Or do something fun, challenging, or unique and get sponsored.

Bike Ride

There are also plenty of traditional fundraising ideas that are always popular - car boot sale, cake sales, raffles, guess the name of the teddy. And still the most popular - a quiz night! (We can even help you with the questions.)

Remember, it's always more fun (and less work) to organise as a team, so ask your friends and family to help out.

Check out the fundraisers coming up.

Get Sharing

Social media is a really helpful way to share information about activities, successes, events, and reports on issues affecting young people.

Can you share our posts to help reach more people, and help 4YP make a bigger impact?

4YP Welcomes Local Business & Corporate Support

Does your company have a Social Corporate Responsibility (SCR) initiative or Charity of the Year?

Maybe you're clearing out some old furniture of IT equipment.  Or even have some expertise you think may be helpful to 4YP, such as PR, design, carpentry, etc.

Corporate partnerships are great sources of raising awareness and donations, and a fantastic way to boost your companies image in the community.

Please get in contact, we'd be very happy to discuss ideas.
