We printed some extra greetings cards this festive season & would be honoured to donate any sales to charity, so do consider popping a card in with your coffee order :)
This card is designed by Pharmacie manager Tash, and printed on 100% recycled card, complete with a kraft envelope made of post-consumer waste. The card is blank inside for your message.
All proceeds will go to Global Social Club a youth support service run by Hummingbird Project. They really need our help to continue their work in 2020.
What is Global Social Club?
Global Social Club is an awarding winning youth service that we run with our partners! The group was started in response to requests from young refugees to meet more people their age. The young people we met told us they felt stressed, lonely and isolated.
Since establishing Global Social Club we have welcomed over 200 young people and become recognised as the UK’s first Youth Club of Sanctuary!
Through the group, young people build friendships, share culture, access specialist support but most importantly, they have FUN!
In 2019 we have had cooking classes, horse riding lessons, trips to London, capoeira and art classes to name a few thanks to a grant given to us Brighton and Hove City Council.
Building relationships and having fun should be a part of everyone's life!
Often young people accessing our services have experienced things that are difficult for us to comprehend. War, separation, trafficking and sometimes grieving from multiple losses.
Having a community around you and sharing laughter with others is so important for young people, especially for those who have experienced such difficulties and often lost their loved ones.
One young person who attends GSC said to us recently:
"In the UK I don’t have my family but when I’m at Global Social Club, it feels like a family"
