YMCA Norfolk celebrates its inspirational staff
YMCA Norfolk celebrated its inspirational staff and told them about its future plans at a day for all colleagues at the King’s Centre in Norwich on April 4.
Chief executive, Tim Sweeting, told around 100 staff: “I hope you have enjoyed the day and it has made you feel more informed, involved and valued and you have a clear sense of where we are going together as YMCA Norfolk.
“Thank you for all you’re doing to transform young people’s lives. Together we can do even more to make an impact.”
