Our Team

KEY is fortunate to have over 100 amazing volunteers working on a rotational basis.

Many of our volunteers are currently taking part in the Duke of Edinburgh award scheme which we wholeheartedly support and encourage younger volunteers to get involved with.

We also work closely with supporters who provide us with funds, storage space, supplies, collection and distribution of items throughout the various sessions at KEY and across York.

In addition we feel very strongly that the general public are part of the KEY team by responding to appeals whenever asked.

A great evening at KEY tonight despite the dreadful weather 😢

We are really low on sleeping bags and when it’s like this we are asked more and more as everything gets soaked including the guys and girls, if you can, please buy one or two from our amazon wish list or from somewhere else and drop off at The Management Suite Vanguard next to prezzo or the Haxby co-op as we are desperate for them please, we would be hugely grateful ❤️ (Amazon link below)

We would like to say a huge thank you this evening to Mia, Ben and their mum Michaela for bringing along some fabulous baking which went down a treat with our guests 🍰

Also a massive thanks to Kim our optician who comes in once every six weeks to offer eye tests to our service users 😊

And lastly, to our volunteers who ventured out in the rain to do what they do best and put on a fabulous 3 course dinner with a smile 😃 you’re all amazing 💕

We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who came along to The Parvin this evening for our fundraising event.

It was a great night full of laughs and lots of money raised to help us continue our work ❤️

Huge congratulations to the winning team and everyone who won on the raffle and football cards.

A massive thanks to Andy and all the guys at The Parvin for yet another fabulous quiz and excellent food 🥘

And lastly a massive thank you to everyone involved for their support, raffle prizes and donations, without you we couldn’t do what we do.

Together you have raised a staggering £2100 which includes a donation of £1000 from a very special group of people who nominated KEY as their preferred charity and brought the money along this evening.

This money will make a huge difference to us and we can’t thank you all enough.

We will be holding another event next year so if you missed out this time don’t worry, you can come along next time.

Thank you 💗💖💕 ... See MoreSee Less
