Digswell fellow Luke Archer is opening his studio doors to three young budding fashion designers whom have found help and support from YMCA Bedfordshire and YMCA England. 

Luke said: “I really am looking forward to offering these carefully selected three individuals make their dream come a reality by designing their own garments, in the very same studio I create garments for high profile clientele and private clientele. I hope that YMCA Bedfordshire can raise the funds for their travel, as this really is a once in a lifetime opportunity.”


YMCA Bedfordshire are currently crowd funding for the costs in transport over the 5 day placement, which are £350. YMCA Bedfordshire posted recently:

You can donate specifically to this cause by texting. Just text either £1, £2, £3, £4, £5 or £10 to 70070. You will then receive a text message confirming your donation and the option to add Gift Aid which will make your donation go even further.

It is a quick and easy way to donate, for example, to donate £5, simply text YMCA08 £5 to 70070 and we will automatically receive 100% of your donation. (Don’t forget to add in a space between the code and the £ symbol)

Your donation amount will be deducted from your phone credit or show up on your monthly phone bill with no additional charge for the text message.

Thanks for helping us raise these funds before our deadline date of the 31st July 2015.
