Charities

Every year, each newly installed Tingewick Firm selects two charities to the beneficiaries for that year’s fundraising.

The charities we are proudly supporting in 2018 are Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) and the South Oxfordshire Food & Education Academy (SOFEA).

We are raising money for MSF in the loving memory of Lottie Fullerton, a much-loved member of our year who tragically passed away last year. Her spirit of love and generosity will never be forgotten.

 

Below you can find out more about our two fantastic charities:

MSF

Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors Without Borders (MSF) is the world’s leading emergency medical humanitarian aid organisation.

They provide emergency assistance to people affected by armed conflict, epidemics and natural or man-made disasters, without discrimination and irrespective of race, religion, gender or political affiliation. They work in over 70 countries and go to places where others cannot or choose not go.

SOFEA

The South Oxfordshire Food and Education Alliance is a local charity that empowers disadvantaged young people through a unique combination of academic, practical and therapeutic support. SOFEA provides in-date, surplus supermarket food to around 250 charities in the Thames Valley. Their warehouse is managed by young people who have fallen out of mainstream education. Whilst gaining practical and employability skills, these students also receive lessons in maths, English and the arts. SOFEA offers a safe, stable environment for young disadvantaged people to thrive and develop with support, empathy and encouragement from dedicated staff.
