A YAC membership would make an excellent Christmas present to any young person!
I’m an assistant YAC (Young Archaeologists’ Club) leader with the Sussex Weald branch.
Recently we had some bad news that the government would be cutting finances to The Council For British Archaeology, and this will affect the YAC’s, as we are currently subsidised by the CBA .
All the leaders are volunteers, and we give up our time to run events once a month for young people aged 8-16 to get involved and learn about archaeology.
YAC are running a campaign to raise funds through recruiting new members to the UK main branch, fundraising and promoting the ‘adopt a branch’ scheme. Please check the website to see how you can help http://www.yac-uk.org/yaccampaign
Please help to save a fab. organisation for future generations of potential archaeologists,
