Why cycle for us?

Our incredible supporter community go above and beyond to raise awareness and funds to change young lives.


Our CEO, Chas, and Compliance and Facilities Manager, Peter, take on epic cycle challenge!

In June 2020, this dynamic due cycled 26 miles, 26 times over 26 days! Of the challenge our courageous CEO said "Every year, we fundraise to ensure we can deliver all our charitable services. This year we need to fundraise £0.5 million to support our work with homeless young people. With Coronavirus having a big impact on our communities, this work is more vital than ever."


YMCA enables people to develop their full potential in mind, body and spirit. Inspired by and faithful to our Christian values, we create supportive, inclusive and energising communities, where young people can truly belong, contribute and thrive.
