We recently helped Kent based Imago with their latest initiative - to open a charity shop in Tunbridge Wells - with the help of a one of our micro sponsorships. The project will bring new life to Tunbridge Wells oldest charity shop, and provide a valuable accredited retail training scheme and development opportunities for the local community. We also provided some of our delicious sausages to feed the volunteers, staff and beneficiaries of the charity's Young Carers and Short Breaks schemes at their local Christmas party.

Imago believes that communities can be made stronger and individuals can become more able to face change and challenge with just a little bit of help. The charity's work ranges from providing Short Breaks for young, disadvantage or disabled people in Kent, to helping people at the other end of their lifespan remain safe and independent in their homes.

The charity also runs Volunteer Centres and the latest venture of an Imago Charity Shop will raise funds to support and expand the work of the charity overall. Caroline Shaw, Chief Executive said "we are delighted that the team at debbie&andrew's is supporting us. Their micro sponsorship scheme aims to keep local communities strong by supporting grass roots activities. This ties in so well with our passion for enabling people and communities to reach their full potential".

Our micro sponsorship scheme supports small projects for whom a small amount of money can make a big difference. If you have a project that you think could do with a helping hand from us, please click here for more information.
