Take Heart, Take Action
I just wanted to take this opportunity to tell you about Take Heart India http://www.takeheartindia.org/about.htm, a fantastic and inspiring youth run charity focused on practical education projects in India.
The annual Take Heart Ball was held on Thursday evening at Kensington Roof Gardens which WAYN, along with a number of other companies, sponsored. The event was a huge success with the organisers estimating the night raised around £30,000 with 100% of proceeds going towards vocational education and training projects for blind and handicapped people in rural India.
The charity lives by the motto ‘Work builds, charity destroys’, rather than giving money they aim to empower people through practical education. The charity means a lot to both myself and Jerome, and in order to continue doing their amazing work, they need your support.
You can make a difference by donating here: http://www.justgiving.com/thi/donate and there is still the opportunity to donate for the following remaining prizes from Thursday’s ball:
1. Luxury 2 night stay at the Bermondsey Square Hotel including dinner one evening, value £500
