IYC named Forest Fundraisers 2016 Charity

It’s Your Choice is thrilled to announce that we have been chosen as the Forest Fundraisers 2016 Charity of the Year!

Forest Fundraisers said on their Facebook page:

“Our other piece of good news today is to announce that next year we will be supporting ‘It’s Your Choice’ which is a charity operating only within the New Forest and gives advice, support and counselling to youngsters aged 12-25.

So often young people have no one to turn to for such help and IYC have trained youth advisers and counsellors who can give support on a one-to-one basis, dealing with issues from homelessness to unemployment to drink and drug abuse.

With the charity suffering from large cuts to grants, we are hoping that, with your support again, we will be able to provide a small amount of financial help in this vital area.”


Everyone at IYC is delighted with the news and we’re looking forward to getting involved with the Forest Fundraisers fundraising activities over the next year. Chief Executive, Chris Carey, commented,

“It was a real pleasure to meet the Forest Fundraisers recently. I’m delighted they have chosen us as their charity next year. Local community support is so important to our future so we are hugely grateful and look forward to working with them in 2016.”
