On International Nurses Day we at CTK want to thank all our nurses, like our former student Sarah, across the country for all that you are doing. These unprecedented times have made it most important to value and protect our NHS and so much of that weight falls on all our nurses all over the country, helping us win the battle against Coronavirus. From here at CTK: thank you Nurses!
Our staff, students and wider CTK community are always keen to help support local charities, especially now during the Coronavirus pandemic. The outbreak has had a major impact on all of our lives but particularly for vulnerable groups who need support now more than ever.
Volunteering and supporting others is at the heart of our Catholic Mission and we always strive to support our local community; now more than ever we need to come together to give back to those who are most vulnerable.
We set up a Just Giving Page, aiming to raise £1000 to be shared between three local charities that we work closely with:
Greenwich Bexley Hospice need our support at this difficult time.
The Athena service Lewisham/Greenwich, run by Refuge, offer support to young adults suffering gender based violence. With a 25% increase in domestic violence locally, any money raised will be a lifeline for this charity.
Lastly, Lewisham Foodbank which CTK also supports regularly. Food banks are experiencing shortages during the crises and every pound raised feeds a local vulnerable family in need.
We actually surpassed this, and our current total is at £1148! Thank you for all your donations, it is greatly appreciated to help these charities serving the local community in need at this time.
