12 Months, 12 Charities
As a new year’s resolution for 2013, we have set about to raise money for 12 charities in 12 months (or more if we can do it!). So far this year, thanks to generosity and kindness from our devoted customers, we have raised much-needed funds for Birmingham Children’s Hospital (Diabetes Home Care) http://www.bch.nhs.uk/content/diabetes-home-care, RSVP (Rape and Sexual Violence Project) http://www.rsvporg.co.uk, and Arrive Alive UK http://www.childrenshospitals.org.uk/. Please see the links for more information about these fabulous charities.
Coming up we have some exciting charities to raise awareness for, including some great events. These include:
Thursday April 4th: Info day for Arrive Alive UK, 12pm-2pm
- Come along to find out how you can help, whether it be through monetary donations, collecting aluminium cans, or spreading the news about Arrive Alive. All who sign up will receive a voucher for a free drink!
Saturday April 20th: Charity Swish for Kommandantsdrift School in South Africa, 11.30pm-2pm
- Kommandantsdrift Primary School is an eco-school, working to encourage children to be pro-active in conservation and green projects. Students have a little of everything, but resources are in short supply. ”When asked, British school children claimed to need a) play station b) money c) food. When asking the Afrikaans school children the same question, they replied a) parents b) clean water c) socks”. Please help us help the children of this school and raise what they need. Donate a pair of socks to enter, and pay just £2.00 to enter an item to swish. Anyone who enters will get to take advantage of a slice of cake and coffee for £4.00 as well! Please see the below links to find out more info:
Monday April 22nd – 28th April: UK Coffee Week to raise money and awareness for Project Waterfall
- Help us raise money towards the £1 million needed to deliver safe drinking water and sanitation projects for up to 100,000 people, specifically in Africa. More info to come!
Future charity projects include Network Four www.networkfour.org, St Mary’s Hospice http://www.bsmh.org.uk/ and Birmingham and Black Country Community Foundation http://www.bbccf.org.uk/ as well as a fantastic exhibition from the children at Birmingham Children’s Hospital.
