Events coming up.....
Open Day Raffle
In 2017 we are fundraising to make sure that every new tenant receives a starter pack with all the basics they need when moving in to a new home. Often tenants come to us with very little and providing a positive moving in experience means they are more likely to develop a good relationship with us and move forward positively.
We are drawing the raffle during our open day on the 7th of October 2017 at noon. Prizes will be randomly allocated.
Afternoon tea for two at the Old Deanery
2 x Everyman Cinema tickets
£30 voucher for food at The Turf, Ripon Spa Hotel
6 month gym membership at Core Fitness
2 Course Sunday Lunch at the Lamb Inn Rainton
Voucher for Dog Grooming at Short, Bark and Sides

£10 voucher for Olivers Pantry
2 Tickets for Ripon Races
2 Tickets for a 2018 Yorkshire cricket match
Beauty, chocolate, candles and luxuries hamper
Drinks hamper (whiskey, wine, prosecco, spirits)
And many more to come!

Running for the YMCA
Our Chairman James Parkes is combining two of his hobbies and Running to raise funds for us here at Ripon Ymca.
Its been just over a year since he joined the Beginners Running Group at Ripon Runners...and he absolutely loves it.
Snape 10k was his first race following his 0 - 10k beginners running group. Since then he has completed a handfull of 10k races. To mark this one year anniversary he would like to use this race as an opportunity to raise some vital funds for us here at YMCA Ripon of which James is Chair of the Board of Trustees.
YMCA Ripon supports young people aged 16 -25 who are homeless or at risk of being homeless. In addition to providing a community space for all to use. More info can be found by visiting www.riponymca.org
