Penny Appeal spreads smiles during hospital visit
As part of our Love Thy Neighbour UK work we headed down to University College London Hospitals this week to give gifts and offer moral support.
With our Serving in the Community bus packed full of toys and presents, we were able to give some joy to children and young people undergoing treatment on several of the wards.
Over 130 gift bags were handed out, but the smiles we received were countless!
Harris Iqbal, our UK Programmes Manager, said: “We feel honoured to have touched many hearts and helped create some special memories.”

THANK YOU #TeamOrange
Up and down the country our #TeamOrange volunteers are working hard to support people in need, and as this is Volunteers’ Week we’d like to say a big THANK YOU to every member of the family.
Whether feeding the homeless, visiting the elderly, decorating community centres or taking gifts to sick children, they think nothing of giving up their time to help others.
With our dedicated UK programme Love Thy Neighbour our volunteers are more important than ever, and we’re so grateful to each and every member of the #TeamOrange family for their dedication, passion and willingness to help.

Thank you for making orphans smile!
Throughout April we celebrated Smile Relief – our month-long extravaganza that encouraged people to have fun to support orphans and needy children around the world.
There were all sorts of events and activities taking place, from the nationwide Sami Yusuf tour and 10k of Kindness in Birmingham, to #TeamOrange fun days, cakes sales, car washes and collections.
All this means that children will get the care, education and love they need to thrive.
You can still make smiles by sponsoring an orphan for just 50p a day. Start now by calling 03000 11 11 11.

#TeamOrange give Syrians a warm welcome
Our #TeamOrange volunteers helped give Syrians living in Bradford a warm welcome to the community during a special event at Dixons City Academy on Thursday 21st April.
The Dixons Syrian Action Team organised an evening of food, entertainment, information and friendship, to bring together new people to the city with other residents, local businesses and dignitaries.
At the end, #TeamOrange volunteers handed out food and household packs from the Penny Appeal bus.
Ridwana Wallace-Laher, North-East Fundraising Manager, said: “It was a wonderful evening and we were delighted to be part of it. The humanitarian spirit of everyone involved was inspirational and clearly showed the generosity of the community.”
