As a club we have supported the Purple Community Fund for several years by collecting ring pulls from drink cans - an initiative by Past President Cate Whitewood.
PCF upcycles the ring pulls into various products which are handmade by their Purple artisans in the Philippines. PCF provides training and the opportunity of future employment; monies raised are used to better the lives of poverty-stricken families in the Phillipines and Tanzania.
To quote from the PCF website:
The Future is Purple
We passionately believe in providing sustainable opportunities so that our beneficiaries can help themselves and their families out of poverty through the acquisition of new skills, education, training and our holistic programmes. We strive to make a difference to those who are in the direst of circumstances.
