Hi there,

I’m writing in the hope that you may be able to help me out?

Have you heard about the new Southend YMCA shop in Southend?
It’s called YMCA ETC and it’s a platform for young people (many of whom are disadvantaged) to learn CV and confidence skills to help improve the employment prospects. It provides mini-internships and youngsters can gain experience in everything from retail, customer care and catering to marketing, promotion and styling.

The shop is a really vital resource as it provides education and support which will hopefully prevent young people who are not in work or education slipping into long term unemployment.

The shop is a self supporting charity shop and each week has to raise the money to continue this social enterprise project.

PLEASE can YOU help Southend YMCA help others this Christmas?
Your unwanted clothes will help Southed YMCA continue this project.

We can even arrange collection of your unwanted items.

If you have Facebook, join our group and see more information at


PLEASE CALL 07534 503544 to arrange a collection or just bring the clothes to:-

Southend YMCA ETC,

4a Southchurch Road,

Southend                              on any Thursday, Friday or Saturday.

Thank you in advance for your generosity and may I ask you to consider forwarding this mail and attachments to your contacts to help us spread the word about this cause?

Many thanks
