Latest Charity News
Supporting charities is one way to help make a positive difference to the communities we are part of.
Here at Henson Crisp we feel it is important to support the local community in whatever way we can; which is why we regularly donate to a number of charities.
Amongst the charities that we support are :
- The Purfleet Trust
- YMCA Cambridgeshire & Peterborough
- Peterborough Cathedral
- Huntingdon Rugby Club
- Great Ormond Street Hospital
The Purfleet Trust was set up as a charity in 1993 to provide help for single homeless people in King's Lynn and West Norfolk. Its services now include housing advice to help people find accommodation, support to help them maintain their tenancies, and a Health and Wellbeing Centre providing a daily hot meal and the opportunity to gain some essential life skills. The centre can be used as a postal address and there is free access to both computers and the telephone.
The YMCA is a locally based charity that has been at the heart of community transformation in Cambridgeshire & Peterborough since 1852. Our focus has always been on building proactive and sustainable communities with an emphasis on supporting Young People, helping them to realise their full potential on their journey from dependence to independence.
Peterborough Cathedral has charitable status and receives no direct funding from the state or from local parish shares to help raise the £3,500 required every day to maintain the operation of the Cathedral throughout the year.
Playing at youth and junior level is a great way to get into the sport.
Children who participate in organized sports have the opportunity to develop many skills - some emotional, some physical. Involvement in sports can be a great thing for children of any age.
“The child first and always”
Great Ormond Street Hospital provides inspirational and world-class care to hundreds of children every day. But we need to raise about £100 million every year to help give hope to seriously ill children and their families.
