Emma’s BuzzcutA fundraising project by Emma Blyth
I have been growing my hair to donate it to ‘Little Princess Trust’ I thought that I could also raise some money for Exeter Community Initiatives.
Here are some reasons why I have chosen this charity.
“Exeter Community Initiatives is a dynamic charity working in Exeter and across Devon. We help people facing poverty, inequality and homelessness to get their lives back on track. We do this by involving them in community projects to improve their mental, emotional and physical wellbeing, increase their sense of belonging and provide skills to help them succeed in life.”
“Our Children’s Centres aim to ensure that parents with children under five years old can have the best start and thrive in life. The Children’s Centres run a variety of group activities, support other community groups and can also provide intensive one to one support to families”
“Transitions brings together volunteer mentors and people who need extra help to live independently. We train all our volunteers in coaching and communications skills, they bring their experience of life and then we match them with someone who may need help with budgeting, looking after a home, managing a health condition or finding work.”
“Family and parent support for families with emotional and practical issues as well as excluded teenagers. We tailor our support to meet your needs helping with finances, housing, parenting issues and behavioural and emotional needs of your children.
We work across Exeter and Devon providing high quality support and a safe service.”
“Jelly is a children’s charity shop selling quality used children’s clothes, shoes, toys, and accessories. We are a charity shop with a difference. Not only do we sell donated goods, we train people who are out of work to get back into the workplace. We are based in Fore Street, in Exeter, Devon.”
“Ripple Effect enables people facing multiple disadvantage to develop personal skills whilst helping others in their community.”
