Our Charity Partner - The Auntie Foundation


...
Our charity partner – ‘The Auntie Foundation’ - raise money here in the UK which is invested through delivery partner ‘Ikamva Labantu’ - an African charity based in Cape Town. Ikamva’s founder, Helen Lieberman,  has worked tirelessly for 50 years, supporting, caring and fundraising.  Helen discovered that children were often being left to fend for themselves during the day, perhaps because their fathers were away and their mothers had to work. People began to ask her for assistance and Helen vowed to help, setting up an ad hoc child minding service. She soon realised we needed something more for the children to occupy themselves and went on to fundraise to provide daily childcare for the venerable children.

At Cherry Trees Nursery various fundraising events take place over the course of the year, from Skydiving, Cake sales and photography to name but a few.

This year we have the following events and hope to raise even more than last year:

-          Friday 24th July – A Bollywood evening has been organised where there will be lots of good food, and entertainment throughout the evening. Tickets are priced at £25.00 per head.

-          Laura & Iwona from Cherry Trees will both be taking part in a sponsored skydive in August 2015.
