Can you raise £20 for children like Henry?

Yippee and Yip4Youth are YMCA East Surrey’s warm and welcoming Saturday and holiday play schemes for children and young people aged 5-18 with a wide range of disabilities and complex needs held across East Surrey and West Sussex.

Yippee provides age appropriate activities for young people, ensuring that they can play with friends and try out new activities, whilst giving families a vital break.

‘Having the Yippee club means that we as parents have peace of mind knowing that our son is cared for in a safe, loving and caring environment giving him time to meet and interact with other children and get involved in loads of different activities.’

Your support helps keep these schemes running and ensures that all families with disabled children can access them.

£20 will pay for a bursary place enabling a young person with disabilities to attend a Saturday Short Breaks activity day

£100 will pay for a child with disabilities to attend a week of stimulating holiday scheme activities

Your support helps keep these schemes running and we appreciate any amount you can raise.

The best way to fundraise is to set up your unique Justgiving fundraising page. If you prefer the more traditional method of fundraising, please download your official sponsorship form.
