The charity has been set up to raise money for projects to support young people in and around Derby as well as further afield. The Simpson family feel that this is the best way that Jamie’s memory can be honoured- by helping young people, providing them with Life Skills, encouragement and opportunities to enhance their lives and aspire to a positive future for themselves.
By supporting our cause, you will be helping us to fulfil our aim, which is to enhance the lives of young people in Derby and throughout the world.
The Charity has donated funds to Littleover Community School for their link expedition with The Child Africa Kabala School in Uganda – the funds will go towards refurbishing the school, creating a vegetable garden and the purchase of bicycles. We have donated gifts of uniform, stationery, first aid boxes and funds to two schools in Tanzania.
The charity has also supported a school in Jamaica by providing several computers for use by the children. Moreover, the charity completed a Garden project at Normanton Village school, supported by young people.
Samantha Hudson has recently visited Brazil and was moved by how the Cheche Tancredo Neves Orphanage/ Children’s Home came about and how little funds or support they have so we looking to get involved and support them however we can.
These are just a few of the projects we have been involved with so far but in the future, we hope to support many more.
