Story

Cambridge Assessment is raising money to help Red Balloon to pay for renovations to their kitchen.  Here's a message from Red Balloon about what the kitchen means to them...

The kitchen plays a central role in community life and
learning at Red Balloon. It is the first room that students see when they come into the centre and is therefore crucial in creating an environment in which students can feel safe, learn and flourish.
Every day our cook prepares a mid-morning snack and a healthy cooked lunch for students and staff to eat together. This provides structure and routine to the day, gives students a vital opportunity to develop their interpersonal skills, challenge anxieties around food, eating
and socialising in a group. Many of our students also enjoy cooking lessons, learning about nutrition and putting together recipes and meal plans for their peers and teachers. The kitchen is also a place for staff to gather at the end of the day to relax and share information. The kitchen is at the heart what Red Balloon is and what it does.

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving - they'll never sell them on or send unwanted emails.

About the charity

16,000 children in the UK are so badly bullied that they cannot go to school. The aim of Red Balloon is to aid their recovery by providing them with an 'intensive care' full-time academic and personal and social education programme so that they can return to mainstream school or go on to college.
