When Youth events are organised, the Youth funds do try and help subsidise events so we do appreciate all your help with fundraising and hope you have all registered with Easy fundraising and persuaded all your friends and family to join as well. This is a very easy way to raise money for Youth Funds. All you need to do is log onto www.easyfundraising.org.uk and follow the Scottish Region Youth.
