Fundraising for OCAY 

Thank you to the Police and Crime Commissioner, Julia Mulligan, Guildhall Ward Committee, The Local People's Fund, Aviva, Derwenthorpe Partnership Advisory Committee (DPAC) Community Fund and the Hungate Community Fund for supporting our funding bids for advocacy work in and around the city of York. 
Thanks also go to Acomb, Guildhall, Fishergate and Dringhouses & Woodthorpe Ward Committees for supporting outreach work in these wards. 
We really appreciate your support!! 
We are very grateful for our current funding from the Big Lottery that started 1st April 2016 for 5 years!  
We meet part of our running costs through our own fundraising efforts. We are a small local charity, offering a vital service to the City of York, and fundraising is a constant and ongoing challenge. Can you help? 
A Big Thank You also goes to The Green Hall Foundation, Austin and Hope Pilkington Trust, Fishergate Ward Committee and Dringhouses and Woodthorpe Ward Committee.
