YW Foundation

Giving Back to the Community

We believe that even the smallest fundraising campaigns can make a big difference to the world. That’s why the YW Foundation was created; to ensure that the proceeds from our cake sales, fun runs, company competitions and fancy dress days are donated to worthy charities that provide exceptional services to our community.

Charities We Support

The YW Foundation supports three key charities, each of which provides an invaluable service to our community. ‘Mind’ is an organisation advocating better mental health and providing support to those in need. ‘GOSH’ provides life-saving treatment to sick children from all over the UK. The Olympia Wafula Foundation provides healthy living solutions for the disabled and disadvantaged, and was established by Paralympian, Anne Wafula Strike.

The photos below showcase some of our past events, fundraising for multiple charities nationwide.
