We are proud to announce that we are supporting the following charities. Beside, we are creating a sustainable and environmentally friendly ball.

According to a 2018 think tank, Cambridge is the most unequal city in the UK, with an estimated 159 people homeless. Cambridge Cyrenians provide accommodation for over 70 men and women in Cambridge, together with services and specialist support for homeless people. They believe in homes, not hostels – where residents are encouraged to take responsibility for their own lives, with support from a professional team of staff and volunteers.

The Sutton Trust is a foundation which improves social mobility in the UK through evidence-based programmes, research and policy advocacy. From early years’ through school, college and university to the workplace, they work to combat educational inequality and prevent the subsequent waste of talent. They are concerned with breaking the link between educational opportunities and family background, so that young people are given the chance to fulfil their potential, regardless of their family background, school or where they live.

Cool Earth is a non-profit organisation that works alongside rainforest communities to halt deforestation and climate change. Half of the world’s rainforest has been destroyed in the last 40 years. Cool Earth creates partnerships that are community-owned and led – an approach that research is continually proving to be the most effective way to keep rainforest standing. By developing local livelihoods, their mission is to end the cycle of deforestation entrenching villages into further poverty. So far they have saved 901,679 acres of the world’s most at-risk rainforest.

Without our sponsors, this event would not be possible.
