Every year we support two charities, we try to support one which is local to Birmingham to make an impact in our own community and one which is international to make a global impact.
This year we’re supporting two amazing charities: Sifa Fireside and Shelterbox! Sifa Fireside is a local Birmingham homelessness charity, aiming to improve health and inclusion for homeless people.
Sifa Fireside works seven days a week to help provide the basics such as food, clothes and showers as well as more complex services such as financial advice, dental services and mental health support, to those who are most vulnerable. You can find out more about their amazing work here: http://www.sifafireside.co.uk/.
Shelterbox are an international charity providing resources and aid to those made homeless by natural disasters and conflict. They’re currently working in the Philippines and the Caribbean in areas effected by tropical storms and countries such as Syria where conflict is entering its 7th year.
