3rd Mar 2017, Volunteer fosterers wanted, York Animal Home, Landing Lane, York, YO26 4RH
We are looking for foster carers for dogs, cats, puppies and kittens.

A lot of the animals in our care have been rescued from cruelty, neglect and suffering. Sometimes we have to spend weeks, sometimes months rehabilitating them and preparing them for a new life and loving new home. Some of the animals we look after find it very difficult to cope in an animal centre environment which is why fosterers are invaluable to us
Volunteer fosterers provide a vital resource to us as they can offer our animals a calm and loving environment during their rehabilitation and help to improve their chance of finding a permanent new home. Knowledge of animal care and previous experience is desirable but full support will be given during the fostering process. Placements can last from a few days to several months.
We cover all veterinary costs and expenses such as food, bedding etc. can be claimed.
If you'd like to speak with an existing fosterer to find out how rewarding fostering can be or would like to learn more please get in touch with us.

7th Nov 2016, NightSafe project funding!, Student Castle, 80 Walmgate, York, YO1 9TL
We are YUSU's NightSafe - a project at the University of York made up of volunteers who are trained in providing immediate support and signposting for all students (and the general public) on each University club night (Sunday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday). We've only been running for a few years, but are passionate about keeping everyone safe on nights out, especially after unfortunate events in the recent past. You might have seen us out, we work in teams of three in orange hi-vis jackets and backpacks, carrying First-Aid, flip flops, water and foil jackets, among other items. We also work with the NYPD, the CCTV control room in York and venue security staff, so that the demand on the police or the ambulance service is reduced. We are trained in First Aid and sessions with various local companies and charities on topics such as Homelessness, Drug & Alcohol awareness, Domestic Violence, and River Safety. We do get a lot of interest off students who hope to join our team, but recent cuts in funding means that training the new volunteers may have to be revised in order to fit with our budget for equipment. Unfortunately, 2017 onward will be a step-back for us as the majority of our funding will be slashed, so we have come to Minster FM for help! We have opened a Just Giving page ( in the hope that any donations will make up for our upcoming losses. We really don’t want to have to compromise on the welfare of students on a night out, the demand of public services, and also the safety of our future volunteers. We pride ourselves on the thought that the University of York was ranked the safest university in the country and would be grateful for any donation, big or small. As mentioned, any money raised will be put towards training new volunteers, equipment and, hopefully, a defibrillator that our teams can carry on shift which can be put into action whilst waiting for the emergency services. If you’re interested in finding out more about what we do, feel free to Email us ( or find us on Facebook (, Twitter (@Yusu_NightSafe) or Instagram (Yusu_NightSafe). Thank you for your time!

2nd Nov 2016, The campaign to bring a 'dying wish' ambulance to York, 36, viking road, York, YO26 5EZ
I am campaigning to raise money to open a branch of The Ambulance Wish Foundation in York in the hope to have branches up and down the UK,there a number of reasons why I wanted to do this.
Please can you support me in doing this, I need thousands of votes to be in with a chance for the Aviva Community Fund or donations from the public towards the cost of our first ambulance.
In July 2014 we lost my father in law, he spent the last weeks of his life in St Leonards Hospice (York), it was heart breaking thinking he would never leave there.
It would have been amazing to have got him out for one last time but unfortunately this is not something that the hospice can offer, this is the case for most adult & children`s hospices.
Since then I have seen people in the same situation with families desperate to do whatever they can to make the last weeks, days of their loved ones life’s as special and meaningful as possible.

Whilst I was looking for a charity that granted a final wish for my mum who is terminally ill. I found one that offered a weekend break in London, with train, hotel and an afternoon tea.
Whilst this was an amazing gift, I had to think logistically about her getting there, although she can walk for short distances and has a wheelchair this still made it very difficult.
I came across this charity and read all the amazing stories about the wishes that had been granted and knew this is something so many people could benefit from.
The Ambulance Wish Foundation's mission is to give every terminal patient who can't be transported other than on a stretcher the attention they deserve, so that a patient does not have to die without their final wishes not being realised. Perhaps fulfilling their final wish brings the patient and their families’ comfort in their last few days.
To be able to do this we need to raise £100,000 to purchase and run our first ambulance for the first year, there is a branch in Bury and they are well on their way to purchasing their first ambulance, thanks to the support of the local community and sheer determination.
With your help we can be soon be doing the same and be granting wishes in and around York, please vote for us via the Aviva community fund
to help make a huge difference!

I have applied for funding through the Aviva Community fund, which will make a huge dent in the money needed to purchase the first Ambulance. I am hoping to work closely with the local Hospices in the first instance to grant wishes from there and my goal is to have a fleet of Ambulances so we can grant more wishes in around Yorkshire, in the hope to have a branch in all major cities.

Many Thanks

25th Sep 2016, Soot and Colours Charity Book, 10 Thompson Close, Osgodby, Selby, North Yorks, YO8 5ZX
Spirit of Christmas is a charity that runs socially inclusive family Christmas parties at which around a third of financially disadvantaged families gain free entry. Three parties are held each year, two in Selby and one in Carcroft and we cater for around 900 people in total of which 420 are children.

It costs around £2000 annually to run the parties and as a charity we do fundraising events throughout the year.

This years main fundraiser has been the publication of a beautifully illustrated 30 page paperback book titled “Soot and Colours”, which introduces the reader to two of Santa’s elf’s (who incidentally come along to lead children’s entertainment at our parties). It's a great read for any child from about 1-7 years and a fun read for anybody who loves Christmas the way we do at Spirit of Christmas. All profits from book sales will go to the charity.

Our charity would love readers to support us in selling our books and this can be done in the following ways:-
• Purchasing a copy of book for you own child or friend and relations children
• Sharing details of book with friends on social media
• Putting up a poster at your workplace
• Selling copies of the book on our behalf
• Helping us in organising a book signing event which may be beneficial all involved
• Sponsoring a child receiving a copy of book at our parties by donating £5 direct to Spirit of Christmas

The books are available for purchase directly from Spirit of Christmas at £5 per copy for those local to the Selby and surrounding area (currently on sale at Selby AVS and Selby Superbowl)

19th Jun 2016, 1000 Miles Walk Home, 24 St Benedict Road, York
As a random idea I decided that I would walk 1000+ miles back to back taking 35+ days. Before the main challenge i have arranged some smaller distances to help with training. Hadrian`s Wall walk (90 miles coast to coast) is now planned for the 19th June and I have now finalised the Bristol to Birmingham walk Via SpecialEffects Head office (137 miles) which is planned for the 15th of September all in time for EGX (weekend). These two walks will help me gauge my ability to do the 1000+ walk and give me a wealth of information. For more information please visit

13th May 2016, Fundraising for charit Cry in the Dark - micro gap, 112 Strensall Road, Earswick, York, YO32 9SJ
My daughter and her friend will be giving up their summer this year to volunteer to work in Romania for this fantastic, inspirational charity. Having visited the charity last year with school both girls were inspired by the work carried out there. This work includes, community project work and working in their hospice and residential centres. The charity asks for each volunteer to raise £2k each and the girls have been busy fundraising to to reach this. I have now been roped in and will be walking from Scarborough (Railway Station) to York (Queen Elizabeth Barracks) 38 miles in 10 hours on 27 May. I hope you will support me in my endeavour, either en route or via my just giving page.
All donations, great or small will be gratefully received.
