Our Chosen Charity – SASH
Every year our Local Hero Awards raises money through a raffle on the night for a chosen charity. This year we're supporting SASH – a local charity working across York, North Yorkshire and East Yorkshire. Their aim is to prevent vulnerable young people aged 16-25 from facing homelessness by offering them a room in the home of a volunteer host. Find out more in this video...
