Waitrose in Harborne have chosen us as one of three causes to support in their Community Matters this month. If you are likely to shop there please do consider putting some green tokens in our box, we’re delighted to be alongside two other great organisations supporting people in need and are grateful that all three causes share the £1000 funding. The funding will help towards our Christmas party for the older people we support through the Karis BeFriends project.
