£500 is up for grabs again as voting reopens for our 'In Edgware We Care' campaign - Who wins? You decide!

Last month we announced that the third round of nominations were open for our 'In Edgware We Care' campaign - in partnership with The Broadwalk Centre. The campaign offers £500 worth of shopping centre vouchers to grassroots groups and charities to boost their neighbourhood projects, community spaces or services.
After receiving multiple nominations for the third donation, three finalists have been selected and it is up to you to decide who will receive this month's offering of £500 worth of Poundland vouchers.

The finalists are: 

Kidz Club

Run every Thursday evening in school term at West Hendon Baptist Church, Kidz Club's aim is to engage with youngsters from the nearby estate at an early age to detract them from crime and teach them good morals in an atmosphere of fun.
Organised by Allison Pickering and her team of volunteers there are currently around 35 children who attend the club. Every year Allison takes the youngsters on a summer holiday camp which for many is the only summer break they can afford to go on. The camp, which also features a family barbeque, relies entirely on being sponsored by the Church's members. Winning the £500 worth of vouchers for Poundland would help secure next year's event and give the Kidz Club members something to look forward to. 

Jami

Statistics show that every year one in four British adults will experience a mental health problem. Jami is a mental health service for the Jewish community, providing support and education to people experiencing a variety of mental health problems, and to carers also affected by these issues. Jami's focus is on recovery, enabling people to live the life they want to live. 

Jami would like to use the £500 from Poundland to buy materials such as cooking utensils and arts and crafts for group sessions. Such activities help those recovering from mental illness to remove social isolation and helps encourage meaningful activity.

The Kennedy-Leigh Family Centre

The Kennedy-Leigh Family Centre provides a range of support services for people with learning disabilities, vulnerable children and families. These services include social work, family support groups, counselling, an inclusive nursery, educational support for children with learning disabilities, and work opportunities for adults with learning disabilities. 
Last year over 3,178 people used Norwood's Children and Family services, and the number of people who are in need of support is on the rise.

With extensive cutbacks in Local Authority services and government funding, Kennedy Leigh is almost entirely reliant on voluntary donations, and would not exist without the community's generosity.

The £500 will enable them to provide materials for therapeutic sessions for vulnerable children in the community who are suffering from anxiety, bullying, or family breakdown.

Voting is easy, simply email thebroadwalk@pmwcom.co.uk with the name of the project you want to win in the subject box, call Gemma Hook on 01403 783400 or vote by commenting on The Broadwalk's In Edgware We Care Post on their Facebook page. 

The closing date to register your vote is Sunday 11th December 2016.

Broadwalk Shopping Centre, Station Road, Edgware, Middlesex, HA8 7BD
