Challenge YCH

Challenge YCH

Yorkshire Coast Radio is teaming up with Yorkshire Coast Homes to make a change in the community.

‘Challenge YCH’ will see the staff from Yorkshire Coast Homes undertaking a big community project, to make a difference in the area.

They’ll have five days to complete it, and we’ll be following them every step of the way.

 

Yorkshire Coast Homes

Thank you for your nominations of projects for consideration.  We are delighted to announce that the team from Yorkshire Coast Homes will be completing a project for Scarborough & District Mencap.                 

Staff and service users at the Scarborough & District Mencap centre on Scarborough’s Valley Road are looking forward to this summer in the sunshine with the news that their outside garden spaces will be getting a top to toe refurbishment from Yorkshire Coast Homes.

The Mencap garden project was picked from a list of twelve applications submitted to the Yorkshire Coast Radio #ChallengeYCH scheme, which invited local organisations to ask Yorkshire Coast Homes to make a real positive difference to their community centred facilities.

The YCH workforce, supported by their local partner companies will be turning up at the Mencap site on Monday 8th June to spend five full days soil clearing, wall mending, tree cutting, fence erecting and flagstone laying to create a brilliant new area for the children and adults who use the centre to enjoy.

 

Take a look below at the garden before the project kicks off.
