Our partnership with Montagu Evans
We are delighted to be working with Montagu Evans as their chosen charity partner. Montagu Evans have set a target to raise £30k to support the renovation of the Claudia Jones Organisation. As well as supporting the building work, they have been carrying out bakes sales, races, quiz nights and sweepstakes to achieve their shared goal.
A Safe Place to Call Home
Montagu Evans is fundraising to support the refurbishment of The Claudia Jones Organisation in London.
With the help of Montagu Evans the existing building from which they operate has started undergoing regeneration. The narrow, dark hallways, and walls damaged by damp conditions are soon to be a thing of the past.
Domestic abuse is often a hidden crime that is rarely reported to the police, which is why the Claudia Jones Organisation provides confidential, one-to-one, non-judgemental support based on the needs of the women themselves.
The rate of domestic abuse in the London borough of Hackey is higher than the national average. This is why we are working with the Claudia Jones Organisation to ensure that they have the facilities and workable space that they need to efficiently support the many women that come through their doors.
The main aim of this renovation is to provide the Claudia Jones Organisation with an open, light, and welcoming ground floor that contains a new reception and access to the garden area.
Volunteers from Montagu Evans have already started work on this project, as well as carrying out other fundraising activities, proving them to be a committed supporter of our work.
