Youth 2000

Youth 2000 is a charity whose vision is to raise up a new generation of saints to evangelise the nations.  They organise youth retreats throughout the year with the main festival taking place at Walsingham over the August bank holiday.  To make the festival happen this year, the charity needs to raise £50,000.  A generous donor has offered to match fund any donations given before 25 January.  Therefore, Youth 2000 need to raise £25,000 before 25 January in order for the festival to happen.  Please follow the link HERE if you feel able to donate any money to this cause.  Thank you.
