    My daughter has had a great time at Yip4Youth this summer holidays. Cant believe that there are no further holidays available until Easter 2018!! Would love to see Yip4Youth be given more funding so that our young teenagers can continue to benefit from this great organisation. Thank you again Matt and all your volunteers for giving Amy a lovely time! See you next year!
