First of all we’d just like to say a huge thank you to everyone who took part in Wear Red Day for Red Nose Day!
We focused mainly at the JWC on Friday 24th March as we had several volunteers willing to help collect money! With all the hard work of staff and volunteers we raised £60 for comic relief. We didn’t reach our target however we tried so hard to push this event and were happy with the amount we raised.
So what can £60 help with? Well…just £2.50 can buy a malaria net for a family who may be at risk of contracting malaria. £20 can vaccinate 5 children from 5 deadly diseases. £25 can send someone with mental health to counselling sessions and £20 can pay for emergency accommodation for anyone who has fled domestic violence.
We are so pleased that just £60 can do so much to help people in need. Thank you again for your help and donations!
