News Update: New Year’s Resolutions – What Will You Achieve in 2023?

New Year, New Opportunities!

January is always a time when we look forward and map out our dreams and goals for the year to come!

This year, why not consider some new year’s resolutions that are not only fun and innovative, but that could make a BIG difference, too!

Here are 6 new year’s resolution ideas for you to consider, and make 2023 a year to remember!!

1. Support YCC’s Charity Shop

YCC’s charity shop in Heckmondwike sells pre-loved furniture, white goods, and decorative items. We are always seeking support from our local community, whether you would like to donate items or your time, don’t hesitate to get in touch!

Charity retail association also suggested three creative new year’s resolutions to support your charity shop!

P.S. Did you know that our Charity Shop has an eBay account for our Vintage pieces?

2. Get your business involved!

Could your place of work support a good cause? From regular giving such as unclaimed client funds, to pro-bono work and sponsored events in the name of Fresh Futures… there’s always plenty of fun ways that you and your colleagues could make a difference!

3. Tick something off your bucket list!

What’s that one thing you’ve always wanted to do? Shave your beard? Climb a mountain? Jump out of an aeroplane? Make 2023 the year that you set up a Just Giving Page in the name of Yorkshire Children’s Centre and MAKE IT HAPPEN! If you decide to carry out any activity or event for YCC, do let us know, and we can support you with sponsorship forms, publicity, and more!

Check out this list of Running Events that you could get involved in, in 2023!

4. Volunteer your time!

At YCC, we have SO MANY different opportunities for volunteers to get involved. From telephone befriending, and gardening clubs… to regular administrational support and fundraising… We’ve listed lots of different volunteer opportunities across our website. But if you have a special skill that you would like to bring to us, we would be delighted to hear from you! If you would like to learn more about becoming a volunteer, please email [email protected]

5. Make a one-off donation or set up regular giving

Perhaps you would like to make a one off donation to support one of YCC’s services, or maybe you are able to set up regular giving each month for the duration of Fresh Futures. Either way, THANK YOU SO MUCH! 100% of all donations made by the public go straight to Fresh Futures to help us continue and improve our services, reaching more and more people in need each year and fulfilling our charitable objective of improving lives and inspiring change. Please CLICK HERE to make a donation.

6. Take 60 seconds to set up a free donation service forever!

Did you know that both Easy Fundraising and Amazon Smile offer really simple ways to donate money… without spending an penny yourself!! Both programmes are linked to your shopping baskets; so that whenever you ‘check out’ online, a percentage of your spend is donated on your behalf by the company. It takes less than a minute to set up and doesn’t cost you anything at all! Why not tell your friends how easy this is and see how many people you can get on board to double… or triple your impact!
