Jinney Ring Charities

It always causes us difficulties when we are approached to give charitable donations or help run charity events - there are so many worthy causes, more so when times are hard and people cut back spending in all areas. We would like to help everyone but sadly it is not possible.

Rather than spend the whole year with feelings of inadequacy, we choose 3 or 4 charities each year and support them in whatever appropriate way we can. This may be by raising funds for them at our events or just allowing them to collect funds themselves on site, or perhaps by supporting them with events for their "customers".

If you would like us to consider your charity for help for next year or beyond please e-mail us with details.

Details of this years charities are found below:

The Basement Project

The Basement Project

North Worcestershire Basement Projects works with young people from 16-25 that are homeless or potentially homeless. However, they will support any young person with any issue, such as help with housing applications, finances, budgeting, independent living, looking for employment and training; and/or personal issues, including offering a mediation service. All the support offered is impartial and tailored to the needs of each young person in crisis. The demand for the service is ever growing, so the Basement is a charity that continues to evolve to meet the needs of Worcestershire's community.
