GMYN – Greater Manchester Youth Network
Welcome to Mike and Leanne’s Just Giving page!
Please support us by donating below to help our chosen charity GMYN continue to improve the lives of disadvantaged young people.
Day to day, we both work at the same organisation in an office based role, so (other than the lunchtime dash to the canteen) this is probably the fastest we have to move! However, despite our lack of physical prowess, we have committed to run the Manchester 10k for charity - GMYN (where Mike is the Vice Chair of Trustees).
Quite frankly, we both HATE running! But as trustees outside of our day jobs, we both know how important all donations are to small but critical charities like GMYN.
GMYN's programmes engage young people who are in the care system, or have left the care system, and are aged 13 – 25 from Greater Manchester. They provide care leavers and anyone else who has been in the care system with positive life skills, training and a variety of volunteering and social action activities.
GMYN's mission is to create opportunities so that disadvantaged young people can take steps towards a positive future, and with this in mind, any support and donations you can make to help us are greatly received!
So, please take pity on us and dig deep to help support GMYN!
Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to GMYN and make sure Gift Aid is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer. So it’s the most efficient way to donate - we raise more, whilst saving time and cutting costs for the charity!
Thank you to everyone who helps this worthy cause and please make sure you leave us your messages of support or ridicule in the box when prompted when you donate. Also, feel free to come and support us in person at the run on Sunday the 19th May!
Mike and Leanne
