Public Speaker/Cheque Presentation Speaker

To help raise awareness of the charity and to give an insight in what it takes to keep this vital service flying we attend over 500 talks every year to groups, clubs and organisations. The talks we attend can vary from a simple 5 minute thank you to a full, hour long presentation and we train our volunteers to be equipped with the right information and to be comfortable adapting the presentation to suit the audience. This is a challenging, but very rewarding role.

YAA also receives donations from various groups, businesses and organisations and many of our supporters like to have a representative attend their fundraising event or visit their premises for a personal thank you. This often involves a photo opportunity and/or a thank you speech to the people that have raised the money.
