Else Solicitors are pleased to have recently announced our latest charity partner: The Buddy Bag Foundation.
The Buddy Bag charity was started in response to the growing amount of children who enter emergency care after escaping violence at home.
48,000 children require emergency accommodation in the UK alone every year. The Buddy Bag Foundation supplies bags to children who find themselves in emergency care following a traumatic incident.
Each bag contains essential items, as children fleeing violent situations often have to leave home quickly with no chance to collect basic items. The bags help in making the transition into emergency care a little easier for these children.
Buddy bags contain items such as toiletries, pyjamas and underwear, as well as comfort items like a teddy bear and a book. The foundation has recently passed the huge landmark of 3,000 bags and hopes that this is only the start.
They also run events in order to raise money for the bags. Else are delighted to be supporting the Strawberry Fizz ‘n’ Fayre Ladies networking event, which will take place on the 14th July 2016.
Aston Wood Golf Club in Sutton Coldfield will host the event, with Alison Delaney as the guest speaker. Tickets include a glass of fizz for every guest upon arrival, followed by Strawberry Afternoon Tea.
Tickets for the event are only £20, and can be purchased here. All money raised will go towards supporting The Buddy Bag Foundation and the essential work they do in providing comfort to children in their time of need.
