Hounslow Friends of Faith wins prize

Kingsley Academy jpeg cpdHounslow Friends of Faith were delighted to be chosen by a group of Year 8 students at Kingsley Academy as part of a First Give competition.  Students researched local charities and shared what they discovered in front of their year group.  A panel of judges marked them on the delivery and creativity of their presentations and their knowledge of their chosen charities.

Danish and his colleagues made a link between bullying and hate crime, vividly explaining how the scars of both remain long term. They made the case that Hounslow Friends of Faith brings people together and stands up against intimidation of anyone just for being who they are.

The presentation in July 2017 won the group a runner up prize and Hounslow Friends of Faith will receive £250.  Thank you Danish and friends!  We hope we can put the money towards work with young people to encourage understanding and reduce bullying.

First Give is a programme which works with secondary schools to help young people give their time, tenacity and talents to help their local communities through sparking a social conscience and developing team work and research and presentation skills.
