Social Transformation

Back to School 2023

We reached over 770 children in Woking, Aldershot and Guildford through our Back to School programme this year. Every child referred received a new backpack full of goodies and a voucher to buy a new pair of shoes.

We also ran local events in each town where families could come along and pick up many more items for free.

At our Guildford event we welcomed 170 parents and children to an afternoon of fun. They had a chance to pick up some pre-loved casual clothes and school uniform, eat some delicious cake at our cafe and then collect their Back to School packs.

Huge thanks to everyone who donated items, gave money to our Summer appeal, or who volunteered for one of our teams at our Back to School events. We really could not run these events without your help and support and we are truly grateful.
