Weʼre raising £2,000 to help children suffering from severe emotional trauma as a result of early life experiences by supporting the charity Childhood First.
- Children and youth
- Time left
- 23 days to go
Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.
We are a group of young people who only recently learnt of Childhood First and the work they do for children affected by trauma and we were instantly touched.
Some of us felt an immediate connection due to our own childhood experiences whilst others felt deeply moved on a more philosophical level. That alone showed the subject reaches more people than many would think and as we read about the stories of the children Childhood First has already helped we saw the value of supporting those affected to help them cope as they grow older.
For the next 6 months we will be holding a range of fundraising and volunteering activities to support and raise awareness for this charity; these will include us dressing up as Santa Claus, holding Christmas Jumper competitions, putting our wits together in a pub quiz and putting our cooking skills to the test in a series of bake sales.
We would love you to get involved by taking part, making donations and even just by cheering us on! Together we can make a real difference to children's lives!
UPCOMING EVENTS INCLUDE
* London Santa Run on 4th December in Victoria Park
* Christmas Jumper and Mince-pie Honesty Collection day in early December
* Inter-departmental pub quiz and raffle in February
