Welcome to AWBS philanthropy
AWBS has a long tradition of supporting local charities and we look forward to a packed calendar of events to support our 2021/2022 selected charities. Over the years, the club has donated £400,000 to which we currently aim to add at a rate of at least 12,000 annually. Join us and help our dynamic Philanthropy team reach our target!
AWBS are proud to be supporting our three wonderful charities this club year:
The Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead is rich in culture and heritage and well served by multiple venues such as Theatre Royal Windsor. However, it is also a borough of great diversity and, despite projects and efforts from our local arts centres, The Kevin Cruise Foundation has identified a need for further exposure to the performing arts, particularly for children from disadvantaged backgrounds.
Offering complimentary theatre and pantomime tickets to children, families, carers, schools and charity volunteers; ideally, this would include cast ‘meet and greets’, back and on-stage opportunities. This full theatrical experience opens a door to the world of arts and culture.
"Aik Saath" mean "Together As One" in Hindi, Punjabi and Urdu and embody the ethos of the charity. They believe in working together for positive social change and in empowering young people to make their communities safer and stronger places.
Younger People with Dementia (Berkshire) was formed in 2012 and has grown year on year in both the numbers of the carers that it supports and those diagnosed with young onset dementia who attend appropriate weekday workshops across East and West Berkshire, helping them to live better with dementia.
In addition AWBS will continue to support the Runnymede Foodbank with monthly collections at our General Meeting.
