Hull Youth For Christ
The Exec

Andy Dorton

(Chairman)


Andy is the Church of England's 'Social Responsibility Officer' for Hull and the East Riding. He previously worked as a social worker and homeless hostel manager and has a degree in economics, politics and sociology. Andy is married and lives in North Bransholme where Liz (mainly) brought up their two children. Andy became involved with Hull YFC in the late 80's. He is interested in Hull's spirituality, in how Christians can communicate 'good news' across a huge historic and cultural divide, in 'community development' and in housing and regeneration.

Joy Donaldson


Joy has been on the Hull YFC exec for the past 8 years. She also volunteers once a week at the Breakfast Club and really enjoys getting to know the children and families, but isn't so keen on making the toast! Joy works part-time as a community physiotherapist with children who have physical special needs. Joy and her husband Mike have three children who have also enjoyed being involved with Hull YFC in various activities including Summer Camps, Pilgrimages, Greenbelt and work experience on the Boulevard.

Mike Donaldson


Mike has been involved with Hull YFC for about 8 years as a member of the Exec Committee. Before coming to Hull he and his family lived in Nepal for three years. Mike first met Chris and Anna at a HYFC curry evening. Mike and his wife Joy had previously had links with Norwich YFC. Mike is an anaesthetist working at Castle Hill Hospital and Hull Royal Infirmary, and is also an armchair Man U supporter. Mike and Joy are members of St John's Church, Newland.

Cathy Beynon


Cathy is married to John and has four children aged 2 - 16 years. She works hard as a full time mum at home but manages to be fully involved in her local Church with youth groups and children's work. She enjoys having guests for meals, speaking French and throwing parties for children! She linked up with the HYFC team when she was involved in the Powerpoint Family Project on Longhill. She thinks that it is a real privilege to serve HYFC, as she is always challenged by their faith and solid commitment to Hull's young people.
