100 schools and counting...
Since 1993 we have had the privilege to deliver projects in
100 different schools both in the London Bexley Borough and beyond it's borders!
Further funding of £4,500 also very gratefully received in March from the Bexley Volunteer Services Council Covid Giving scheme (funded by The National Lottery Community Fund) to support the production and delivery of our new ‘Moving Up’ programme.This supports year six pupils making the move up to secondary school and replaces our three year old ‘Taking Off’ programme. We hope to provide Moving Up in up to 16 schools.
We were very pleased to once again be beneficiaries of support from the Fellowship of St John's Trust Association - The Holy Childhood fund. The trust has supported CRiBS over a number of years for which we are extremely grateful. The trust have historically supported the delivery of Christian RE via our REfresh programme of lessons and now have granted us £10,000, in May this year, to deliver our new and updated REconnect programme which provides Christian RE lessons and workshops to support the newly introduced Bexley syllabus for 2021.
We are also very pleased to receive news funding of £5,280 from the MSE Charity ‘Raising the Next Generation’ fund which will allow us to provide the Christian Against Poverty (CAP) CAP Kids and CAP Youth money courses in primary and secondary schools to provide sound budgeting strategies for young people. Our aim is to deliver 40 workshops across 20 schools. Four of our staff have now completed the training. Delivery of the courses started in September 2021.
