A Crafty Success!

Fab day at York River Art Market, the weather held and we spent a lovely day by the river meeting new people, getting the word out and raising £36.25 for Survive York. We still have some lovely hand made pieces left so do contact us if you’d like to place an order!


Support for Survive

CN: Rape and Sexual Violence Charity

Happy and excited to announce that YFC will be raising money for Survive York who provide support for survivors of rape and sexual violence. All of the proceeds from our stall at the art market will be going to this excellent and deserving charity so do come down and see us on Saturday 29/07!

Crafting, Crafting!

Preparations are well under way for our stall on 29/07/17 – YFC at York River Art Market. We’re still looking for donations of handmade goods to sell to raise money for charity and for volunteers to help out on the stall for a couple of hours on the day so get in touch if you can help!

Planning Planning Planning!

So it’s been a busy month for YFC. We’re now ready to launch our period poverty drive to collect donations of menstrual products for York Food Bank. In the next few weeks we’ll be visiting local shops and businesses to ask for donations and arranging information and collection boxes for work and community spaces. If you’d like a box for collecting products or want to make a donation please Contact Us.

We’re also busy making wondrous crafty creations from jewellery to crochet to sell at our stall at the York River Art Market on 29/07 and will be hosting an open craftivism social on 15/07.

A Little Update

So we’ve kicked off 2017 with a really strong start to building this group. We’ve got lots in the pipeline including our period poverty drive and plans for a fundraising craft stall at York River Art Market on 29/07/2017.

Our next meeting is on 01/06/17 and we’ll be looking to officially launch the period drive soon after that.

We’re also looking for graphic design help to support us in creating a proper logo for the group so please do get in touch if you think you might be able to help or have any ideas for a design!

Anyway, exciting thins are coming so watch this space!

Getting Active

Really productive meeting this month as we started to think about the kinds of actions we want to run. We’re looking at arranging a Feminist Film screening and fundraiser and doing some work to support the local foodbank and homeless charities with provision of menstruation products. If you’d like to get involved Contact Us or visit our Facebook page. Alternatively, watch this space for details as we get them.
