Cancer Research UK praises Ahmadiyya Muslim Youth Association Yorkshire for their support


Young people in the region are more likely to volunteer in their communities than their older counterparts, according to official stats.

Figures from the Office for National Statistics show 39% of people aged 16 to 24 have volunteered in the community in the last year, compared with 37% of people aged 25 and over.

Cancer Research UK credited youth organisations for the increase. Emma Colbourne, senior area events manager, said: “This year in particular we have seen a real increase in support from local youth organisations including Police Cadets, Air ahmadiCadets, Sea Cadets, Army Cadets.

We have also received some great volunteer support from the Yorkshire Ahmadiyya Muslim Youth Association unit who have helped with numerous volunteer roles.”
