Cheque to Children Heard and Seen
Today a cheque of almost £2600 was presented to Rod Diaz of charity Children Heard and Seen.
The cheques was part of proceeds from the 2019 Children Singing for Children Concerts which went towards supporting four different charities.
Children Heard and Seen is a charity which provides support and interventions for children with a parent in prison. The charity was set up in 2014, with a focus on reducing intergenerational offending, and mitigating the impacts of parental imprisonment for children and young people. This support is primarily across Oxfordshire, but also Buckinghamshire and Berkshire.
In 2019 we won the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service. This is the highest award given to volunteer groups across the UK to recognise the exceptional service within their communities.
