2020 funding lets AYF grow

AYF were delighted to learn recently that several of their latest funding bids were successful, allowing the charity to continue to deliver its award-winning work in 2020.

The charity recently learned news of a £9,814 grant from Awards For All towards salaries.

This followed the exciting news that our application to North Ayrshire Council's Youth Participatory Budgeting was successful, allowing us to spend £1,000 on equipment with which to set up a music recording studio. Equipment included two new guitars, as well as recording software, and will allow our guitar pupils and other interested musicians to record songs.

At the end of 2019, we also learned that STV Children's Appeal had again decided to support us with a £2,000 donation towards the charity.

In addition to ongoing grants from The Robertson Trust, Gannochy Trust and BBC's Children In Need, these grants will allow AYF to continue to grow throughout 2020, delivering more successes for the island's young people. As always, we are therefore hugely grateful to our funders.
