  • Our thanks to Asda Cheltenham Shoppers!

    Date: March 31, 2014

    We had a wonderful surprise on Friday - Jill and Syrita, Asda's Community Life Champions, arrived with a £200 cheque for us! Cheltenham YMCA was the winner of the recent green token collection in store. Pictured right are Jill & Syrita from Asda presenting David Wallace, Cheltenham YMCA's Chief Executive with the cheque. We are so grateful to those Asda shoppers who chose to donate their token to Cheltenham YMCA. The £200 is a significant donation to our current fundraising appeal - we have £125,000 to raise to complete our new 73-bed accommodation unit at 6 Vittoria Walk, Cheltenham.  For more news of Asda's community activities, click here.
