Annual Charity

The 2019 Presidential Charity is CHUMS

CHUMS Charity supports a number of local services which rely wholly on charitable funds.

With the help of CHUMS Charity and the contribution of so many different supporters in the local community, £500,000 is required to fund those parts of the service that do not receive contractual funding. Those services are:

  • The Trauma Service – Bereavement and Non-Bereavement Trauma (sexual abuse and witness to domestic violence)

  • The Bedfordshire Suicide Bereavement Service (BSBS) – supporting families in the devastating aftermath of a suicide death

  • The Recreational Therapeutic Service supporting young people who can’t readily engage in 1:1 talking therapies, via football and music programmes

  • The Babyloss Bereavement Service – supporting families when a baby dies before, at or soon after birth

  • The Disability Friendship Scheme in Luton – offering a safe social space on a Friday evening to youngsters with learning and/or physical disabilities.
