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.
