It would be nice to adopt a local charity and raise money, encourage volunteering, etc.
The following have been suggested by members:
Akwaaba – Small local Sunday social centre for migrants.
Aston-Mansfield – Activities and support for children and young people.
The Magpie Project – Newham charity offering help and advice to mothers and children in temproary accommodation.
St Benet’s – Who have been so generous in welcoming us, and without saying a word reminding us that solidarity manifests itself in many ways.
At the teachout on Monday, we’ll identify a charity (not necesarily one of these) and start to develop a programme of support.
