On Tuesday 5th September our CEO and Founder, Rosalind Bluestone MBE, and Head of Fundraising and Partnerships, Andrew Anastasiou, had the honour of attending an event at the House of Comms that truly embodied the spirit of compassion and support.

Growing up in poverty means facing a myriad of challenges that threaten a child’s well-being, education, and future opportunities. In the UK alone, the stark reality of poverty casts a long shadow over the lives of nearly five million children. These children find themselves trapped in a cycle of deprivation, where access to basic necessities and a stable environment are often luxuries.
Amidst the backdrop of financial strain, the annual ritual of purchasing school uniforms has become an added hardship for many parents in the UK. In a nation where child poverty rates are unsettlingly high, the struggle to make ends meet has intensified, leaving many parents anxious about providing their children with the essentials they need for a successful academic year.
