Chiswick School Cabaret And Auction For Refugee Charity
Sixth Formers and staff raising money for Choose Love
Sixth Formers at Chiswick School are holding a Cabaret and auction on 26th February in aid of Choose Love, a charity that brings humanitarian relief to refugees.
The students- and some members of staff- will put on a show of singing, dancing, poetry and specially-composed music on the evening.
Several local businesses have donated items for the auction ranging from a brewery tour, to yoga sessions.
The school has particulated in fundraising activities for several charities, ranging from mental health, to teenage homelessness and Guide Dogs for the Blind. They also raise money from their tuck shop sales.
Their Senior Citizens panto/concert at Christmas was so successful that they decided to organise another charity event before the demands of studying for their exams becomes too time-consuming.
Choose Love is the world’s first store where you can buy real gifts for refugees. Their store contains practical items like tents, nappies and sleeping bags. But instead of taking them home, each purchase buys a similar item for someone who needs it.
Since 2017, sales have funded more than 1.5 million items being distributed to refugees.
