Our chosen club charity is Home-Start Reading. The charity has served Reading families since 1984. In recent years we have seen many families struggle to cope with mental ill-health and physical disability, bereavement, broken family relationships, domestic abuse, poor housing and poverty. We see parents who are overwhelmed by their difficulties, frequently feeling isolated and lacking the self-confidence and strategies to break the cycle and give their little children the time and care that will ensure they have the best possible start in life.
So far we have raised £248 through hosting an online kit auction. We welcome any new fundraising ideas, so if you do have any please share them with us or get in touch with Mary, our club coach to discuss these further.
