Love Support Unite & Love Tilinanu
We have chosen to support and work alongside small grassroots charities around the world.
Love Support Unite and Love Tilinanu are sister charities which we hold extremely close to our heARTs.
Since 2018 Jade has spent the majority of her time in Malawi, working very closely alongside these charities on a voluntary basis.
Over time, several fundraising events have taken place to help support both charities, helping to create a positive change for the future.
When Jade first visited Tilinanu, she was completely overwhelmed and inspired, not only by watching the girls go about their daily lives, but by also seeing the joy that they get out of the most simple things in life is just so special. Love, laughter, singing and dancing; the list goes on.
One particular day the grils were outside playing with an old netball. As I stood watching them running around and laughing together it warmed my heart so much. I also realised just how good they were at netball, despite there being no court or posts. This inspired me to want to help, empower and create opportunity for them.
I decided to set up a a JustGiving page and was completely overwhelmed by people’s kindness and generosity. Within just a few weeks enough money was raised to build the girls their very own netball court.
Whenever I then asked for people’s support, I was absolutely blown away by people’s kindness. I posted on Facebook asking if anybody had any old or unused school bags which they could donate. The response was amazing and on my return to Malawi, I filled a whole suitcase full of school bags.
CHARITY BALL FUNDRAISER
Each year a charity ball is held in order to raise funds for the 36 girls living at Tilinanu. This covers their yearly health, education and living costs.
Jess kindly donated two of her paintings to the auction to support the girls.
