Things you can get involved with...

Here's a glimpse of what we do...

Covid: In response to the Covid crisis we have established a last-resort emergency fund to help families in significant distress. Families must be referred to the fund by a professional 3rd party.  If you would like to donate to this fund please contact us.

We organise fund raising events in our community

  • Spirit of Hitchin Gin Festival
  • Hitchin Wine and Food Festival
  • Hitchin Hard Half Marathon
  • Bric-a-brac, cakes, food sales, bucket shakes

We use these funds to do good in our Hitchin Community.  For example:

  • Kids Out days to the zoo
  • Immediate support for families in need
  • Scooters for a special needs school
  • Food provision vouchers
  • Supporting mental health well-being
  • Bee suits for children
  • Tree planting
  • Litter picking

Helping other charities deliver their services:

We work with Rotary Clubs in other countries on humanitarian projects.

There's more to tell but we'll leave that until we meet you at a meeting one day. We like to have fun as well!
