Red Trouser Day
Red Trouser Day is a charity that raises funds for research, innovation and the acquisition of products and services to improve bowel cancer patient outcomes at The Royal Marsden Hospital. The charity is a vehicle that allows patients and their families to have something that enables them to feel more positive about their situation and provides a community for sharing knowledge, experiences and events.
School-Home Support (SHS) is a charity working with children and families to maximise educational opportunities and improve life chances. Partnering with schools, local authorities and families, SHS looks beyond the classroom to understand and tackle the issues affecting children’s learning. Since 1984, we have used early intervention to break intergenerational cycles of low aspirations, academic failure and worklessness, replacing them with children in school, ready to learn.
