Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.  This year Leicestershire Young Archaeologists’ Club are undertaking a sponsored walk at Bradgate Park in Leicestershire on Saturday 27th June 2015. As our members undertake the Bradgate ArchaeoQuest challenge, they will enjoy a fun day out at the park which will see them walk the 7km circuit around this fantastic historical location. As part of the event the group will explore the park’s diverse history, undertaking fun archaeological challenges along the way to raise money for the ‘Dig Deep for YAC!’ campaign.

 

Why are we fundraising for the Young Archaeologists’ Club (YAC)?

YAC is the only nationwide organisation for young people interested in archaeology. Run as a network of more than 60 local clubs across the UK, every year it allows over 7,000 young people (aged 8-16) to get their hands mucky doing real archaeology. Our vision is for all young people to have opportunities to be inspired and excited by archaeology, and to empower them to help shape its future. Raising funds is critical to our success but like many organisations and charities we are facing a challenging financial future. Until recently, YAC received statutory funding but sadly this is no longer the case. Inevitably, this has had a major impact on the organisation’s finances. To keep YAC running and to help support the 600 volunteers who give up their time to make the local YAC branches work, we are seeking to raise £45,000 nationally this year, and the Leicestershire YAC branch aims to do its bit to contribute.

We believe YAC offers a fantastic range of opportunities and every penny raised will help young people across the UK realise their potential through archaeology, so please Dig Deep for YAC! and donate now.
