Active fundraising campaigns

Surrey Young Carers

Surrey Young Carers provide tailored support to children and young adults throughout the county who are caring for a family member with a disability, chronic illness, mental health issue or addiction.

SYC provide 1:1 support, opportunities to connect with other young carers through group sessions, and organise outings to give young carers with a break from their caring role.

Beekeeper Training in Liberia

In Liberia 70% of the population earns a living from agriculture at an average yearly income of $450/year, which makes beekeeping the ideal complementary skill. Since 2011 the Universal Outreach Foundation (UOF) has worked to develop a locally produced honey industry in Liberia, training farmers to become beekeepers, and establishing the Liberia Pure Honey social enterprise to ensure a long-term market for the honey produced. To date more than 1000 Liberian beekeepers have been trained.

At present all honey produced is sold on the local market, where demand currently outstrips supply, both as a food and a medicinal product. The Liberia Pure Honey social enterprise ensures that all honey produced by farmers trained by UOF can be quality controlled, harvested, and made available on the market, securing a long-term farm to market cycle.

Help us support their work creating jobs for families in need.

Mid-Surrey Community Fridge needs a new van

Mid-Surrey Community Fridge and its volunteer corps help collect and distribute around 10 tons of food every week to people in need within our community. They need a new refrigerated van to help them meet growing demand.
