A brief history of YN

YN (set up in 1993 as ‘Young Norwood’) was the brainchild of Norwood’s current Chairman, David Ereira. Its purpose was to be a part of Norwood that would be relevant to young professionals who wanted to get more involved.

YN has gone from strength to strength, establishing itself as a vital contributor to Norwood’s annual fundraising programme and holding many successful events. Through donations and fundraising activities, YN now contributes over £500,000 to the charity each year.
