We are very excited about making a difference in our local community through the work we can do as Caterham WI!
This page includes details of the current campaign we are supporting.
Caterham Food Bank are our nominated local charity for 2019. Here's a little bit about them:
"We don’t think anyone in our community should have to face going hungry. That’s why we provide three days’ nutritionally balanced emergency food and support to local people who are referred to us in crisis. We are part of a nationwide network of foodbanks, supported by The Trussell Trust, working to combat poverty and hunger across the UK."
We will be supporting Caterham Food Bank by collecting food donations at our monthly meetings and fundraising through the Bake-off competition in June!
MAKE A DIFFERENCE!
The Official Bit!
There are a few rules about the causes we can support and as we are a registered charity we have to follow the rules set out by the National Federation. To give you a brief overview we can support causes that:
Improve and develop conditions of rural life
Advance our member’s education in citizenship, in public questions both national and international, in music, drama and other cultural subjects and in all branches of agriculture, handicrafts, home economics, health and social welfare
Gives women the opportunity to work together on causes that are in line with the WI’s charitable objectives
Supports a cause that benefits as large a selection of local people as possible and not just one individual
