This year JCI Southampton’s Charity of The Year is No Limits. This means that we work closely with this particular charity, and try our best to help with their current activities as well as creating new ways to raise funds for the great cause. No Limits is a charity for young adults and it offers information, advice, counselling, advocacy and support for young people under 26 living in Southampton and Hampshire.
On the first week of April JCI Southampton’s Council Board paid a visit to the No Limits drop in centre on High Street, Southampton. During the visit the board learned from Mrs. Natalie Hutchins, who works as a fundraiser for No Limits, of all the different ways this wonderful charity helps the local youth. Some of the projects are more permanent in their nature, some are more ad hock and based on acute need.
Nevertheless, No Limits helps over 5 000 local young people annually, and the work is very valuable. One of the ways JCI Southampton is helping No Limits to raise funds is by taking part to the Southampton APB 10k and Half Marathon. On top of this the council board used some of the visiting time to come up with new ways to help the charity to raise funds; ideas are being developed, but one of them was to put the JCI Southampton’s members professional skills into action next Autumn in No Limit’s benefit. How this happens is yet to be confirmed. Don’t we just love to help the local community and come up with innovative ways to do it!
