Here at Connect, we believe in being charitable and helping those less fortunate than ourselves. 2023 continues to be another difficult year for many families, especially with the ongoing Cost of Living Crisis, and Energy Crisis. Now, more than ever before, we must show compassion, understanding, love, and support for one another.

Our fundraising efforts this year have included:
