A girl went to bank some cheques for work, and did something amazing while she was there
Joanna went to the bank to pay in some cheques for work, and while she was there she also took in a £10 note. She started by simply exchanging the £10 note for two £5 notes, but when she left the bank, that’s where things got really interesting.
She had heard about people giving the first of their new £5 notes to charity (using the #FirstFiver hashtag), and wanted to do the same. She made sure that she got at least one of the new £5 notes, and went straight to Trafford YFC, a local youth-work charity, firmly placing her new £5 note into hands of one of the staff-workers, who deposited it directly into one of their collection pots.
Trafford YFC (Youth for Christ) is a Christian charity working within Trafford. They aim to “Take the Good News relevantly to EVERY young person in Trafford” and do so through lessons, lunch-clubs, and detached work. Trafford YFC is a local charity that is part of a National organisation. It isn’t funded by the government, but solely through charitable donations from churches and individuals like yourselves. They deliver, and have produced, over 25 lesson topics following the school curriculum, helping young people discover what Christianity is and how it differs from the secular view of ‘world religions’.
If you would like to know more about the work of Trafford YFC, head to the homepage. If you want to give your first fiver, you can hand-deliver it to the office, or pass it on to one of the Staff/Trustees/Volunteers.
The Trafford YFC office address is:
