RBN Web Desk: The Spread the Joy with Tolly Boy campaign, just four weeks since its beginning, has already crossed 1,500 votes to support a range of meaningful community projects. These projects include healthcare, education, women’s empowerment, childcare, victim support, elderly care and social welfare. Tolly Boy will be giving away funds of up to £26,000 to the community groups with the most votes.
At the launch of the campaign at Seamark Cash & Carry in Manchester, two local community groups, Fatima Women’s Association and Afruca were present along with others. These groups work for child welfare and women’s issues. Chantelle Walker from Afruca said, “We work with African children and families, especially those who are victims of trafficking and slavery and vulnerable to abuse. We are grateful to Tolly Boy for helping us spread awareness of the work we do.”
Steven Perry from Tolly Boy said, “We have been a part of the community since 1962. The response we have got so far in this campaign has been overwhelming. We are happy to see our efforts making a difference to communities where it matters the most.”
Tabassum, a representative of Fatima Women’s Association said, “Over the last 26 years, our charity has been working on women’s empowerment women, particularly in Oldham. This is a brilliant initiative by Tolly Boy that will help fund education, training and leisure activities for women and children.”
