“YES has been going through a period of uncertainty, with funding becoming increasingly difficult to predict and also moving to new premises in May 2007,” she said.
“All charities survive due to team work from trustees and staff, particularly when the future looks uncertain. Without everyone's commitment, Colchester YES would not have survived and I would not have been receiving this award.”
