OUR SUPPORT NETWORK
It is without a doubt that SC Cause would be unable to be as effective as we are without the support of our community.
To date we have received no governmental funding and have been reliant on our own fund-raising initiatives and donations from those that recognise the services we provide as worthy of support.
Our staff are all volunteers, we work independently but together to complete allocated tasks.
As a team our passion is to make a difference; building a solid foundation within the Sickle Cell Support arena for benefit for our community from the grass-roots level.
We have been fortunate to have received small personal monetary donations from individuals and also sums from community organisations who would like to see our work continue, we will always be grateful to those that support our works whether it be monetary and/or voluntary services.
We would like it known who has been very supportive towards the Sickle Cell Community via SC Cause and offer our complete gratitude to the following people and groups:
Our Legacy Fundraising
Founded in 2013 by a small group, Our Legacy provides fund-raising events to support local charities and community groups.
Their bi annual quiz nights are held in East London, in the summer and October. Each year a suitable charity or support group is selected to benefit from funds raised.
Most recently in April 2018, Our Legacy held a FUNdraising Quiz Night, with funds raised being donated to SC Cause.
In the past they have raised funds for a local Kwanzaa support group, The ACLT, The Jamaican School Appeal and The Manhood Academy for Boys, SC Cause loudly commends the works of this organisation and encourages other groups to attend their events to support the works of the community, also to put their own groups forward on the list of future beneficiaries.
The Administration team consists of:
Patricia Mills, Sandra Robinson and Bro Jegna.
