• Annual Donation (mid Sept to mid May)
There are three different donations which SYG
require – subscriptions, summer programme and one-off uniform. By treating
these payments as donations rather than fees, the group, as a registered
charity, is able to claim gift aid on the amount paid which helps the group
If you require financial assistance in order for
your child to attend SYG and you live in Sawston, please contact John
Huntingdon’s Charity who may be able to offer you assistance. You can also
speak to Rev Alan Partridge as the church does have a hardship fund that may
be able to help.
Please don’t let money be a barrier. If you need
help meeting any of our fees please let us know by emailing

completely and undertake a number of different “fun” activities, e.g.
canoeing, wide games, punting, etc, which we need to charge for separately;
the cost is determined by the activities we undertake. The summer programme
fee for 2018 will be £30 per member.
