Young Gloves News Feb 2023

Newsletter Feb 2023

Lots to cover in the 1st Newsletter of 2023!  It’s going to be another very busy year for our club.
We manage to raise £2500 last year, donated to “Reach Out” which is fantastic effort.
With your help I plan to continue to raise as much as possible for local funds.
This year YGK are supporting Kidderminster District & Youth Trust who do amazing things for young people in our area.
All events organised will be supporting this charity and I believe together we can really make another success whilst also having a lot of fun.
