Bishop Robert hosts thankyou event for YMCA supporters

Posted: 16th May, 2018

YMCA Exeter’s President, The Right Revd Robert Atwell, Bishop of Exeter, hosted the annual supporters’ cream tea yesterday at Tuckers Hall in the city.

The event was attended by regular donors and volunteers at YMCA Exeter who, during 2017/18, gave over £50,000 in donations and 8,000 hours of volunteering service.

YMCA residents served a cream tea before listening to Bishop Robert speak about YMCA being a “light in the city, where young people can experience true community and develop their potential”.

Guests also heard from Joint Chief Execs, Simon Johns and Gareth Sorsby about plans for the coming few years, including the development of new affordable housing and a mental health service.
