Where The Book Money Goes
Posted by Boundary Community Launderette on 13/12/2010
Thanks to everyone who has donated and bought books from the bookstall we’ve been able to make donations totalling £80, £20 more than we had in November when we asked for your ideas of where some of the money should go. Some of you kindly got in touch, and we’ve settled on two suggestions in addition to our two chosen causes. Four donations of £20 will be posted out this week to the following:
Crisis: This is a charity for single homeless people who, in addition to the valuable work they do year-round, each Christmas open shelters where people who live on the streets are given a safe and warm place to spend the holiday period. All the people who need help are given food, clothing, medical help, advice and support. http://www.crisis.org.uk/
The Helen Bamber Foundation: This a UK-based human rights organisation, formed in April 2005 to help rebuild lives and inspire a new self-esteem in survivors of gross human rights violations. http://www.helenbamber.org/
Richard House Children’s Hospice: Richard House is a purpose built children’s hospice in east London. They offer wide ranging support to families with children and young people life-threatening conditions or complex healthcare needs, during the child or young person’s journey through life to death, creating positive experiences along the way which become good memories for the future. http://www.richardhouse.org.uk/
Shoreditch Youth Football Club: This is a truly local organisation, working with young people on the Boundary Estate and neighbouring area. The team has been competing in the Sports network Council youth leagues and various local tournaments and regularly attracts 15-20 young people under the age of 16 on a weekly basis. http://noboundaries.org.uk/?page_id=282
