These opportunities are really hard to come by and present a fantastic opportunity for us to raise much needed extra funds! To have volunteers to help us will make a really big difference in covering the hours available between 9.30 am and 6.30 pm.
It just involves standing at the store entrance with a collection tin and handing out stickers in exchange for a donation – as simple as that!
If you can spare an hour or more on one or two of the following Saturdays, please contact info@ykrf.co.uk for more information
Saturdays are:

August 2 – Tesco Halifax;

August 9 Tesco Brighouse;

August 30 Tesco Huddersfield.
