The Clacton Flow Fund!
Everyone’s a winner as the Clacton Flow Fund returns!
Once again, YOU will get to decide as three vital local charities go head-to-head for £1250 in cash from Clacton Shopping Village. Voting will take place on our Facebook page and via the link below to decide which charity gets the £750 jackpot with the runners-up sharing £500.
In the mix this round are three good causes, Robin’s Cancer Trust, U Turn and CVST (Community Voluntary Services Tendring). With all votes to be counted and the results announced by the end of March.
All three work with the local Clacton community, and provide vital services to those in need. But don’t just take our word for it, here’s a bit more about each Charity.
“Community Voluntary Services Tendring exists for over 45 years. In fact, in 2023 we’ll be celebrating our 50th birthday.
Our mission is leading and supporting voluntary action and empowering local people. And our core functions are to support, promote, and develop the community and voluntary sector. Plus, to encourage liaison and connections between organisations, agencies, and businesses. CVST has a unique position in the community. And because of this, we work closely with partners and stakeholders from all sectors to identify and share knowledge of unmet local needs. “
Robin Cancer Trust
“We save lives. How do we do this?
Raising awareness – we educate young people on the signs & symptoms of testicular and ovarian cancers through our award-winning digital campaigns and lifesaving educational programmes.
Offering support – we provide free materials to newly diagnosed young people going through treatment, helping to make the most difficult time of their life a little easier.
Connecting our community – we create meaningful connections with survivors through our Ambassador programme, giving a voice to those affected by these rare forms of cancer. “
“Last year the UTurn Youth Hub was used 2,500 times by young people in Tendring. UTurn offers free and confidential information, support and practical help for individuals aged 10 – 18 years old, experiencing personal and socially challenging life situations as consequences of violent crime.
Together we can encourage them to make wise life choices:
- To stay in education / employment,
- To educate and raise awareness of gang culture and youth violence,
- To work hard to realise their potential.”
