WHO ARE WE?

Tea Parties (2015)

January 01, 2018

It all started with a small act of kindness; our youth wanted to host a tea party to raise funds in order to buy gifts for children at the Calderdale Royal Hospital. This was an idea that stemmed from our beloved student who was a cancer patient therefore he was regularly attending appointments at the hospital. His fellow class mates wanted to spread some happiness and joy to others like Ali Raja who also had to spend lots of time away from their school and friends so we used the money raised from the tea parties and gifted them with toys, iPads and lots of love and well wishes to help bring a smile to their faces!

Car Wash (February 2015)

February 02, 2015

Members of Team Unique wanted to spend a day in the community, raising funds for someone close to their hearts. Young people got together and raised as much money as they could by having a charity car wash. In total they managed to raise a whopping £1200 - that's a lot of clean cars! 

 

The group decided to use the money they raised to have a water well constructed in the South of the Philippines in memory of Ali Raja. This was a monumental tribute by an inspirational group of young people and a sign of things to come. 

Snowdon Summit (2016)

January 01, 2020

Following the success of previous charity endeavours, Team Unique wanted to move onto bigger and more challenging projects so the team decided to trek up Mount Snowdon - the highest mountain in Wales! UC3 braved the new experience by going up as a group of 120 people from our local community in Halifax and we managed to raise a staggering £21,000!! An AMAZING achievement by the team and a very memorable adventure! 

Bucket Collections (2016)

June 02, 2016

What better way to raise awareness and attract more supporters and volunteers than reaching out to our local and well known communities? 30 members of Team Unique took to the streets of Halifax, Bradford and Manchester to inspire others to take part in our projects and donate towards all of our work in Pakistan and Syria. We spent lots of time speaking to the general public and in doing so we managed to raise £3000 which was used to provide humanitarian aid in Pakistan and Syria.
