Spending Positively

Spending Positively, it’s easy really. Just by choosing to book with us you are making a positive change in your community.

For example: You choose our café’s to grab yourself a delicious coffee and maybe a treat for later because it’s a great price and you’ve heard great things. But as an extra bonus to your tasty pick-me-up, you have also helped us in the fight against homelessness in Somerset. Everybody wins!

Or, we provide well-equipped, fully catered, reasonably priced conference facilities, and you choose to connect with us because it offers everything you will need. But then, all of the profit from your booking goes to the good work we do throughout the YMCA.

Just by booking you are supporting young people, communities and families in Somerset. Great stuff!
