This year we are collecting money in aid of the Papworth Trust. We will be raising money by selling raffle tickets but also collecting donations.
The Papworth Trust is a medium sized Charity who are based in East Anglia. They supply housing to those who are in need and assist disabled people within the community. They assist a broad spectrum of people with disabilities, however, a lot of their work is focused on people with mental disability.
We would like to raise £2000 to put towards a new kitchen within the Cambridge premises. The kitchen will be used to teach people with learning disabilities to cook safe healthy food.
As well as raising money we would like to work with some people with learning disabilities with a view to offering them some employment. A similar scheme was set up in Canterbury Punting Company, who offer shifts to some of the patrons of a Kent based Charity (KWDSG).
How to take part
Raffle tickets will soon be available to purchase from our check-in desk on the quayside.
