Throughout November YMCA Newcastle ran the Man Down campaign to raise funds to help us support young men in Newcastle. The campaign aimed to combat mental health issues, and problems that come with these issues such as suicide, homelessness, unemployment and drug and alcohol misuse, the Man Down campaign also encouraged young men to talk openly about their problems and seek help.

To help us raise funds our CEO Jeff pledged to take part in a sponsored shave off and sacrifice his beloved beard of 10 years. Jeffs shave off managed to make over £250 in sponsorships, all of which will go towards our ongoing support of young men in need in Newcastle.
