Each academic year we nominate a charity which the school supports through fundraising events and activities. For the year 2015/16 our nominated school charities are Coffee 4 Craig and Refugee Action.
Coffee 4 Craig
Coffee 4 Craig is a not-for-profit organisation set up to support, work with and be an all accepting approach to homelessness…one person at a time.
When one of the founders brother Craig passed away on the streets due to mental health and substance addictions she knew it was time to do something. They set up Coffee 4 Craig and and as a result there is more awareness, more people off the streets every week and has given scores of regular volunteers opportunities to feed hundreds every weekend.
For thirty years, Refugee Action has been standing up for people who’ve fled persecution, violence and harassment.
Imagine what it’s like to flee your home in fear. To arrive in a new country with nothing but your life.
You’ve survived. But how will you live?
At Refugee Action, they help refugees who’ve survived some of the world’s worst regimes. We get them the basic support they need to live again with dignity. Then we help them build safe, happy and productive lives in the UK.
