£1,000 from the Axis Foundation encourages children to socialise in a safe and enriching after-school club environment.

“This after school club is vital for parents as it gives them peace of mind and practical support in terms of caring for their children whilst juggling their career or studies. They don’t receive much support though, so I’m really happy that the Foundation is helping them,” said Leah Kimani, Axis Europe’s Head of Quality Service.

Leah used the after school club for four years as somewhere safe for her daughter to stay and play until she can be collected. The donation of £1,000 bought gifts, toys and resources for children within the Camberwell community to enjoy.

“The donation has come as a blessing and it’s a great Christmas present for the children and we’re very grateful” Carmen Lindsay MBE, Chief Executive Officer, Camberwell After School Project.

The after-school club enables children to socialise with each other in a constructive and enriching environment and we are happy that our support will be used to bring smiles to children’s faces.

“We liked the cause and recognise the importance of knowing that your children are cared for whilst balancing working and family life. Services such as the Camberwell After School Project are a valuable asset to our community and it is important that we do everything that we can to support them.” Foundation Trustee, Sandie Ryan.
