The campaign has now expired but it's not too late to support this charity.


YMCA Newark and Sherwood works to improve long-term healthy living, youth development and social responsibility in our community.The Community and Activity Village is our flagship project in Newark and Sherwood. It's a space full of opportunities, integrated family programmes and world-class facilities.

It's not-for-profit, inclusive and affordable.

Your donations help us to continue building spaces in the Village for the local community, such as a climbing wall, athletics provisions, cycling track, skatepark, sensory room, art space and more - plus it will help us offer scholarships for families that need a helping hand.

Here from some of the young people and families who will benefit from the project:

Setting sail for young people and families

This September, eight crews of people who live and work in Newark will be traversing the British seas in a relay-style sailing voyage around the UK. But, these aren't sailors!

Community members are taking on a fundraising challenge because they want to make a difference - all in aid of the YMCA Newark and Sherwood Community and Activity Village.

Every penny raised will go towards the cause. The cost of the trip itself has been donated by our kind sponsors BNA Charitable Incorporated Organisation.
