The Children's Trust

Jessica Allchin is the Community Fundraising Manager in Essex for The Children's Trust, the UK's leading charity for children with brain injury. She visited Benfleet RC on Thursday 17 August 2017 to raise our awareness of the charity. In a very inspiring talk, she told us about the work of the trust in their residential facility in Surrey and in the community.
