Charities 2019 - 2020

Songbirds love to bring music to the community and while they do this any monies raised are donated to Charity. Each year all members of Songbirds Choir are invited to nominate a Charity for the choir to support; votes are counted at our AGM to determine our Charities to support over the coming year.

Last year we supported Crawley Open House and  Carers Support West Sussex. We were very pleased to be able to donate just over £1000 to each charity.

This year the members voted for: Crawley Open House and Olive Tree

Crawley Open House

https://www.crawleyopenhouse.co.uk

Crawley Open House provides support and services for those suffering the effects of homelessness, unemployment, loneliness, discrimination, or other forms of social exclusion. Our support is available to anyone in need and aims to provide:

  • Hostel for homeless clients,
  • Day Centre offering a safe and welcoming place to access support, hot food and a listening ear.
  • Help and guidance with achieving financial well-being.
  • Support to achieve better physical and mental health.
  • Guidance on how to find and maintain secure and sustainable accommodation

2018 – The Year of the Building Project!

Crawley Open House has recently purchased what was the Indian takeaway opposite the hostel at Number 11 Stephenson Way. During 2018 they will be completely renovating it and creating a new reception area to deal with donations and to welcome those accessing the Local Assistance Network (formerly Crisis Loans). Behind this will be an area for life skills programmes and brand-new employability projects, starting with bike maintenance and furniture restoration. They estimate this will cost £300,000 and Songbirds are proud to be able to support this fantastic project.

Songbirds hope to contribute significantly towards this wonderful Charity.
