An anonymous donor's gift of more than £2,000 has brought the total raised by NYCGB's Summer Challenge fundraising appeal to nearly £500 over its £10,000 target.

Including Gift Aid, the Summer Challenge has raised a total of £10,485.17 for the NYCGB Financial Assistance Scheme, with the surplus alone representing two course bursaries.

NYCGB Acting Director of Development Rob Colbert said: "We are absolutely thrilled to have reached and surpassed our target thanks to the generosity of more than fifty individuals, and surprised and delighted by the way in which we've crossed the line! On behalf of our members, thank you to everybody who has helped us to this fantastic result."
