Environmentally Friendly Fundraising

We are holding a charity fundraising Virtual Balloon Race, to raise money for Councillor Gareth Aicken’s chosen charity for his year as Mayor of Hatfield. Clean, environmentally-friendly and easy to monitor from any device, our balloon race will be taking digital flight on August 14th and running until August 25th.

One YMCA

Councillor Aicken’s chosen charity for this year is One YMCA, an organisation that offers a diverse range of services, programmes and initiatives in order to support our local communities. Bringing young people and their families a sense of belonging, as well as presenting them with the ability to contribute and thrive in their area, One YMCA have been a lifeline for many years across the county.
