Help us to support the most marginalised children and young people in the UK
Tuesday 22nd August - Gill Fewins, Events and Fundraising Co-ordinator
As you are all well aware, the community we have built in our Facebook group is an extremely nurturing, attentive and supportive one. Something we all at NGN are very proud of. We hope you feel that way and that you think of it as a safe space where you can ask any questions you need to, and get the support you need when you need it.
We are forever asking for you input in various areas of the charity as we want to always make sure that what we do works for you. We work with the thought process that you are very much a part of NGN, who we are and what we do.
Over the last year or so, as budgets have got tighter, we have noticed there are more and more of you self-funding your training and CPD with us. We try to help with this as much as we can, for example we offer bursaries for summer school and we sometimes are lucky enough to get pots of funding from regional trusts to offer to teachers.
This autumn, we have three volunteers running in the Royal Parks Half marathon on our behalf. The money raised from this event will go to fund teachers who wish to attend training or events, but have to self-fund as their schools can’t or won’t. The money will go to teachers in areas where nurture provision is very sparse in areas of the greatest need, in order to support the most vulnerable children and young people in our society.
Please consider making a small donation to Florence’s fundraising page, a couple of quid would make all the difference to children’s lives in the most deprived areas of our small countries. Florence needs all the support she can get as this is also her first ever half marathon and she is very nervous! If you are unable to donate, please consider sharing this page with your friends and family, highlighting why you think ours is a worthy cause. No one is better at describing the valuable work we do than our teachers - i.e. You!
If you would like to join us on the day as part of our cheerleading party, please email me: firstname.lastname@example.org. You are very welcome, we need all the support we can get.
