Season’s Greetings! Each year, the Campbell Tickell team nominate several charities to give to in place of sending Christmas cards by post.
This year we’re pleased to be able to support the brilliant work of: The Clitterhouse Farm Project, Magic Breakfast and Houses to Homes.
Read more about them below.
1. The Clitterhouse Farm Project
The Clitterhouse Farm Project strives to protect the historic Clitterhouse Farm buildings from demolition and to secure their future, so the entire site can be transformed into a vibrant, creative and sustainable hub that supports the surrounding community and small businesses.
They are working hard to foster a sense of pride in the area and bring people together through arts, culture, food growing, the principles of sustainability, skill-sharing, educational workshops and training.
2. Magic Breakfast
Magic Breakfast ensure that no child in their partner schools is too hungry to learn by providing healthy breakfast food and expert support to help identify and reach those pupils at risk of hunger. A hungry child cannot concentrate so could miss out on half a day of lessons every school day if not given anything nutritious to eat first thing.
They work with 48 schools to make sure that more than 48,000 children start their school day in the best possible way in England. In Scotland the charity is working with 38 schools, reaching well over 1,800 children in Scotland every school day.
3. From Houses to Homes
From Houses to Homes has worked with 21 communities in Guatemala, aiming to provide a pathway out of poverty through their programmes in housing, health care and education. The charity started building homes in 2005 and opened their St. Josephs clinic in 2011. On average they treat 300 people a month, with approximately 65% of those being women/ girls.
The charities vision for Guatemala is one in which every family has a safe roof over their heads, a country in which everyone can read and write and in which health – the ability to not just survive but thrive – is possible for all Guatemalans.
